LIVES AND DEATHS OF THE POETS AND NON-POETS.

St. Louis: (no-publisher), 1991. First edition. Privately printed for friends of the poet. Published a year after she won the Pulitzer Prize for NEAR CHANGES. This copy INSCRIBED TO FELLOW POET LAUREATE AND PRIZE-WINNING POET ANTHONY HECHT and wife, "For Tony & Helen, this odd collection for friends--elegies, poems, occasional verses--produced by a baffled commercial printer. Love, Mona." 30 pages; 8.5 x 11" blue, stapled paperwraps printed in brown on front cover only. Poem tipped to last page, presumably as issued. Photo detail of Marc Chagall's "Les Plumes en Fleur" (which is the title of the poem appearing on p.5) pasted to blank page following the copyright page. An understandably scarce volume. Fine. PRODUCED BY A BAFFLED COMMERCIAL PRINTER.
