New York: Farrar Straus and Giroux, 1979. First U.S. edition. Hardcover. First printing. A collection of poems from the 1995 Nobel Prize winning author. A close to near fine copy with a gift inscription from Donald Everett Axinn on the page opposite the title in a very good price clipped dust jacket that has some edge wear to the spine. Includes a laid in handwritten and signed note by Axinn presenting this book to poet Linda Pastan. Axinn was an author as well as being the director of publishing at Farrar, Straus and Giroux. An interesting association copy of sorts.
