Extended Profile

Contents of my shelf are limited to two categories: books for wild release
(or potential trades/RABCKs) and those acquired since BX clicked in.

***********
PAST BOOKRINGS

Italo Calvino's "Why Read the Classics?";
Christian Bok's "Eunoia"; and
"Poems Selected and New", by Heather Spears. (Details are here.)

"Eunoia" and the Spears poems have been revitalized (I hope) as RABCKs.

PROSPECTIVE BOOKRING

Gaetan Soucy's "Atonement".

For inspiration on trades, look for gaps*** in my wall of Eng-lang poets.
Holdings are listed here by author's date of birth, up to 1900.
