68 pages. The Smith, NY, 1979. Inscribed by author on title page. Book consists of 28 poems. From the untitled preface: "Women have an underground language, an idiomatic communication for cultural experience, because the real words are too embarrassing or unladylike. 'The Clackamas' is an attempt to capture this language, to give poetic form and shape to the non-literature of female survival. 'The Clackamas is Nietzchesque in the sense that it is an attempt in a reversal of values. Its intention is to exalt the trivial, the trivial as significant event. It is an effort to understand and explore the female source." Book is in Very Good+ condition - light general wear. Gift wrap and gift card available.
