Synopsis
The searing collection, a cult favorite for decades, by the late Thomas James
 
I will last forever. I am not impatient—
My skin will wait to greet its old complexions.
I’ll lie here till the world swims back again.
                —from “Mummy of a Lady Named Jemutesonekh”
 
Thomas James’s Letters to a Stranger—originally published in 1973, shortly before James’s suicide—has become one of the underground classics of contemporary poetry. In this new edition, with an introduction by Lucie Brock-Broido and four of James’s poems never before published in book form, this fraught and moving masterpiece is at last available.
 
Letters to a Stranger is a new book in the Graywolf Poetry Re/View Series, edited by Mark Doty, dedicated to bringing essential books of contemporary American poetry back into print.
