4 Bednarik, Joseph, editor; Dan Gerber and Jim Harrison, intros. The Sumac Reader
East Lansing MSU Press 1997 0870133272 Limited ed Hardcover Fine Signed
Bednarik, Joseph, editor; Dan Gerber and Jim Harrison, intros. The Sumac Reader. East Lansing, Michigan: Michigan State University Press, 1997, first printing, limited edition of twenty-six copies lettered A – Z, this being V, and signed on the half-title by Harrison, Gerber and Bednarik. Fine, unread copy. Hardcover, no jacket as issued, green paper over brown faux leather spine with gilt spine titles and gilt Sumac Press owl logo on front cover, 14.4 by 22.2 cm, xix 238 pp. plus index. Sumac was a Fremont Michigan-based literary journal founded in 1968 by poets Dan Gerber and Jim Harrison; novelist Thomas McGuane joined the editorial staff in 1969 as the fiction editor. When the inaugural issue appeared, more than 250 American literary magazines were listed in The Directory of Magazines and Small Presses; within three years, Sumac rose to the first tier of these publications and was nationally recognized for its eclecticism and editorial quality. Library Journal called it "one of the best little magazines now being published." As a publisher, The Sumac Press published works by Gerber, Harrison, Yvan Goll, Clayton Eshleman, Michael Heller, and a host of others. This volume, quoting the publisher, “is an anthology that contains poetry, experimental fiction, and works in translation that originally appeared in the magazine. Contributors include four Pulitzer Prize-winning poets—Galway Kinnell, Charles Simic, Louis Simpson, and Gary Snyder—along with Paul Blackburn, Hayden Carruth, Richard Hugo, Denise Levertov, Ezra Pound, Adrienne Rich, and Diane Wakoski. There are early poems by Charles Simic, James Tate, and Michael Waters, as well as a complete section from Galaway Kinnell's classic, ‘The Book of Nightmares.’ Fiction is represented in Sumac by a first-published Jim Heyden story ‘Coyote’ and early prose by William Kittredge. Translations from Chinese, French, Spanish, and Russian bring to American readers the work of masters such as Tu Fu, Lorca, and Li Po. A variety of poetic forms are represented, including ghazals, narratives, suites, found poems, and the freest of free verse.” A fine copy of a scarce limited edition. (case) First Edition.
