the third Gift has arrived
Well, the third copy of The Gift has arrived - no inscriptions, no hard cover,
95 cents and a lurid cover. According to the back cover I am to expect

"A bizarre and special romp"

"A powerful kick"

"An occasion of delight"

or as Newsweek is quoted: "The poet's love affair with the girl in the next
room is a delicate modern idyl, written with a full sense of contemporary sexual
viewpoints by one of the worldliest writers alive."

Sounds interesting.
