Vantage Press, New York, 1983. Stated 1st Edition. Inscribed by author on half-title page as follows: "To Irma, A 'friend in the front office,' at Sunset Animal Clinic. Lloyd Smith". Hard copy. Book is in Very Good condition: light bumping at top and bottom of spine and on 2 corners; light fading on end pages; binding is tight and pages are clean and bright. Dust jacket is in Good+ condition: chipping on edges; rubbing on rear and at folds; not price-clipped. From the dust jacket: "There are poems here concerning such solemn and thought-provoking subjects as the American hostages in Iran and former patrons of the bar who have passed away, but there are also satirical snipes and humorous forays into such wide-ranging topics as free verse and the creation of the universe. Even the animal-lover will find some verses geared to his or her tastes. All in all, the mood invoked is that of any neighborhood bar - there are the poignant moments and the hilarious ones, whirling around in a sea of camarederie."
