New York: Penguin Poets / Penguin Putnam, (2002).
1st edition, uncorrected proof, original glossy illustrated paperwraps (as issued). Selected by Cornelius Eady as the 2002 National Poetry Series Selection for Penguin, offered here in the very uncommon uncorrected proof issue. Also laid in is a publicity letter from Penguin Putnam, which states (in part): "The cover of the book is an original painting by Terrance Hayes; certainly the first time one of our poets has provided the art for his own book." Bright fine condition. Item #6936
