The Skin Spinners

by Aiken, Joan

Condition: See description

New York NY, Viking, 1976, hardcover, first edition stated, first printing by numberline, Good+ in Good+ dustjacket, Signed and inscribed by the Author. Straight, tight and clean with no markings, light corner and spine end bumps, boards show fading at edges, some light signs of erasure on ffep. Dustjacket unclipped with original price, light edge nicks, tiny chips, fading to edges, in new Brodart sleeve." Here are half a hundred inimitable webs of words, spun out with an air of quiet terror and cozy humor. And sitting beside the poet, Ken Rinciari takes up his pen to interpret Aiken's wizardry with just the right amount of scare and imagination."
