    HOMECOMING.

    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Grove Press, (1984.) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - SIGNED on the title page. Very uncommon hardcover edition of the first book by this writer (who spent her earliest years in her parents' native Dominican Republic) to be published by a major press. Since this was issued simultaneously in both soft and hardcover, the hardcover printing was very small. The central section of these poems is called 'housekeeping; and reconstruct her experiences as her mother teaches her housewifery skills, there is the underlying irony that 'at 33' Alvarez is not the 'heroine of her mother's stories' for she has neither a house, husband nor children. A title in the Grove Press Poetry Series edited by Robert Pack. 93 pp. ISBN: 0-394-538552.

    Condition: Fine in near fine dust jacket (short closed edgetears , sunning to the edges of the back cover of the dj, as is common with this dustjacket.) Still a lovely copy of a very hard to find book.
