Grinnell: Green Linden Press, (2020).
1st edition, 1st printing, original illustrated paperwraps (as issued). This "masterful crown of sonnets" is published in the Green Linden Chapbook Series, designed by Christopher Nelson, with cover photo art by Maria Zavate. Each of the fifteen sonnets has an individual strength to stand alone, yet together they build to a "formal accomplishment" that is a hallmark of Kearney's poetry. Strong rear cover reviews by Bruce Bennett, Molly Peacock, and Daniel Tobin. This chapbook sold out and went into a second printing within the first month of publication. The present copy offered is from the original first printing, and is specially signed by Kearney on the title page in brown ink. Fine condition. Item #6827
