The Meteor

by James Tate

James Tate, who passed away in July 2015, left the world with unpublished work, and we are lucky enough to share these poems with you. In these nineteen never-before-published poems, Tate's genius is apparent as he navigates a confusing world filled with peculiar people who act on unfathomable desires. Measuring a handsome 11.75" high by 7" wide, The Meteor is filled with poems that fall through the sky into your consciousness. After that, it's anybody's guess where they end up.

44 pages, perfect bound, letterpress cover printed in metallic silver and fireball red. Limited edition of 336 copies.
