The Iowa Writers School grad's first book, a tour de force composed of 24 sestinas in a rather raunchy narrative using characters from Perry Mason all the while quoting Foucault, Whitman and Berryman. Signed on the title page, and inscribed on the ffep "To Mary - with friendship and best wishes, Jim". Jacket blurbs by John Ashbery and Richard Howard. A bit of abrasion to the front pastedowns, otherwise about fine in a slightly toned else fine dust jacket. (In removable protective archival covers.)
