Special Handling; Newspaper Poems New and Selected

Brooklyn: Hanging Loose Press, 1993. Paperback. 90p., softbound in 8.5 x5.5 inch decorated wraps, the first wraps edition (simultaneous with the hardbound). Bound in, perhaps inadvertantly (too much binder's glue?), is a three-page publicity enclosure on Hanging Loose letterhead. A nice clean unmarked copy of a book that's hard to resist; the author, who then also taught math at University of Massachusetts, has taken found self-parody from newspapers (and overheard barroom talk) and turned it into blank verse. His line-breaks are masterful.
