Good. No Jacket. Ex-Library. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. Minor edge and corner wear; no dj; lightly scuffed and scratched; corners are gently bumped and rubbed; some light shelf wear; ex-library with the usual library markings; overall a nice used copy! Red cloth with white lettering on the spine. 160 historical and poetic pages! "She takes the wail of a downhearted frail (herself) and passes it on direct in poems about men who've already loved and left and her still-tormenting Max's Kansas City beau ideal, with his motorcycle and mustache. It's no mean confession to admit such a soul-shuddering weakness for with-it macho paraphernalia, or to bite down on the fact of being plain--as she does and insists she is--till the last itemized drop of gall spurts out. There's a lot here, in fact, that must be respected as real self-disclosure; and her roaring testimony, when it really roars, can have a dumdum impact on women readers, at least. Since she doesn't censor herself (and who would expect it of the Beats' queen regnant? ) there are skidding moments when bedazzlement and self-pity almost take over and odd histrionic episodes in which she claims identity with the moon. At such times you may suspect that she's flaying herself with a rubber knife, but no question that it's Diane beneath the blade. As in the past, her readers should prove truer than her lovers.............."----from the KIRKUS REVIEW.
