Poems for Evan Connell
Self-Published, [ca. 1980s]. A collection of 14 poems, each poem titled with Connell's book titles, "selected and edited by Ruth Costello," although no other author is given. With a foreword by novelist Anne Lamott, the adoptive daughter of one of Costello's close friends, Mary Turnbull, a "literary champion and patron of the arts," and later a longtime bookstore owner in Marin County. Unmarked, but from the library of Peter Matthiessen. Near fine. Laid in is a printout of a 1985 Costello poem, "For Lama Anagarika Govinda," with a note in Matthiessen's hand on the verso.
