4to, pp. , viii, 61, ; original color pictorial wrappers, side-stapled; generally fine. Also with essays by Andrei Codrescu, Tom Clark, Neil Hackman, and Peter Kostakis. The Poetry Foundation notes that Alice Notley is "one of America's greatest living poets. She has long written in narrative and epic and genre-bending modes to discover new ways to explore the nature of the self and the social and cultural importance of disobedience. The artist Rudy Burckhardt once wrote that Notley may be 'our present-day Homer.' "Notley was born in Arizona and grew up in Needles, California. After earning her BA from Barnard College and MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop, Notley traveled extensively around the U.S. and abroad. She met the poet Ted Berrigan, and the couple lived in Southampton, New York (in the garage of painter Larry Rivers); Manhattan; Providence, Rhode Island; and Bolinas, California."
