Product description

Shelf Life
Thom Gunn

First Edition.

Devoted mainly to aspects of American literature, from Walt Whitman to the contemporary voices of Allen Ginsberg and August Kleinsahler, this book ranges from figures such as H.D., Marianne Moore and Mina Loy - brought together under the title "Three Hard Women" - the Modernist T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound and Basil Bunting, and the West Coast writers Robert Duncan and Jack Sharpless.

The book also includes personal memoirs of Christopher Isherwood and Yvor Winters, and a discussion between Gunn and Jim Powell, himself the subject of an earlier review.

This is a hardback book with dust jacket. The jacket is in very good condition with a few marks and folds, but no tears or other damage. The boards are covered in black cloth with white lettering on the spine. Both the boards and spine are in very good condition with crisp corners and no damage. The binding is excellent and the pages are very good.

There is a contents but no index.

A previous owner has made pencil ticks (and a few ink ticks) on the contents as well as pencil notes on the rear endpaper. Inspection of the supplied images is recommended.
