NY, Random House, 1975. The uncorrected proof copy of the American edition of this novel by the poet and critic most well-known for his study of suicide by authors, The Savage God, which focused on Sylvia Plath and was a seminal, and controversial, work about her and her relationship with her husband, the poet Ted Hughes. Fine in wrappers and inscribed by the author nearly two months prior to publication. Laid into this copy is a photocopy of the galley proof of a poem by Alvarez, also inscribed by the author. Edges of the folded sheet tattered where they protrude from the book; very good. [#004936] SOLD
