Port Townsend: Dragon Gate, (1983).
1st edition, full brown cloth, with illustrated dust jacket. HOME was picked by Raymond Carver as a Pushcart Writer’s Choice selection in 1984. “These are evocative and beautifully rendered poems,” Carver said in his Pushcart citation. “Time and again I found myself stopping to draw breath, moved and sometimes startled at the aching rightness of the image, the felicity of the line. Simmerman is clearly among the best poets of his generation.” Additional strong jacket review blurbs by Marvin Bell and William Matthews. The author's first book. Very minimal wear to jacket, else a fine copy. Item #6774
