Fayetteville: Lost Roads, 1979. First edition. Original printed wrappers. Slight toning to covers, overall very nearly Fine.
The second posthumous publication of Stanford’s work (following Crib Death), published as Lost Roads Number 15. An increasingly scarce example of Stanford's maturing work, cut short by his suicide at 29. Threatening animals mingle with weary men, observant and suspicious women in these stark poems. Death creeps through many of the poems as well: "When you get lost on the road / You run into the dead." Near Fine (Item #4002)
