96pp. Octavo [22 cm] Very good. The covers are gently rubbed, and the underlying boards are exposed at the corners. The pages are mildly browned. The dust jacket is in good condition, with rubbing and light soiling and creasing. Also slightly darkened. There is a light moisture stain along the fold of the front inside flap, that measures 1/2 inch wide by 1 inch tall. The edges are chipped. Price-clipped.
"Miss Swenson looks, and sees, and rejoices in what she sees. Her poems are varied, energetic, and full of a directness and optimism that are unusual in these days of formulated despair and / or careful stylishness."
