N. Y. Atheneum, 1979. First edition, a paperback original (no hardcover issue). Presentation copy with lengthy inscription from Levine to the poet Jane Cooper, who was a fellow student in John Berryman's class at the University of Iowa: "May 3, '79. Dear Jane, This book already has 4 rave reviews. I can't decide which one to put in the Sunday Times, the carefree one I dashed out last night or the somber epic I wrote last Sunday. Like its author, this book will come into the world with a brother, grow to medium height, have loyal friends, + find happiness in its middle years. Love, Phil" Fine copy. Tall 8vo, glossy wrappers.
