STILL LIFE IN MILFORD: Poems.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Norton, (1998) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - A collection by this award-winning poet-undertaker of Milford, Michigan, finalist for the National Book Award. One reviewer described it as "haunted by death. . . Lynch finds abundant material in the vacant eyes of corpses, in the pages of small-town obituaries, even in the autopsy notes from Dr. Kevorkian's patients. Yet throughout, Lynch maintains a sturdy, undertaker's stoicism in the face of the cruelest ironies death has to offer." Poems in which "the ordinary becomes a celebration" but underneath the orderly surfaces is chaos. SIGNED on the title page. Notes. 139 pp. ISBN: 0-393046591.
