You

Fayetteville: Lost Roads, 1979. First edition. Near Fine in original printed wraps. Toning to spine and minor offsetting to edges of wraps. Internally fresh and unmarked. Scarce in collectible condition.

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 and observant, 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."
