New York: Avon, 1960. First Edition. Soft cover, 120 pp. by the master originator of poetic prose. Pages are slightly yellowed, pristine, taut copy of this normally well-read, well-worn paperback. RL Macleod hand written on inside front cover, all else a beautiful collector copy. A love story for the ages, the ageless story of man and woman. Very good. Item #237
" My poems stolen, my money stolen, my Tristessa dying, Mexican buses trying to run me down, grit in the sky, agh, I never dreamed it could be this bad -" (p. 109).
