THE ART OF DROWNING.
Edition: Trade paperback.
Pittsburgh, PA: University of Pittsburgh Press, (1995). A collection of poems by the U.S. Poet Laureate, in which Collins speaks directly to the reader - the San Francisco Chronicle called it a "wonderful, thoughtful, sly, and moving collection" and Edward Hirsch commented that "Billy Collins is an American original - a metaphysical poet with a funny bone and a sly, questioning intelligence. He is an ironist of the void, and his poems - witty, playful, and beautifully turned - bump up against the deepest human mysteries." A title in the Pitt Poetry Series. 95 pp. ISBN: 0-822955679.
Condition: Very near fine in glossy illustrated wrappers.
