bookshelves: 2011, 2012, poetry
Read from September 12, 2011 to February 29, 2012 — I own a copy

Got this used for $4. The previous owner had dog-eared specific poems throughout the book, which was delightful, like silent marginalia.

If you're going to read one Franz Wright book, though, it should still definitely be Walking to Martha's Vineyard. This is the collection he wrote before that and it's rawer, more miserable, bleak and careful. It makes me appreciate Walking even more.
