First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to American film director Oliver Stone and his then-wife, Elizabeth Burkit Cox. Yevtushenko’s heartfelt inscription covers the entirety of the front free endpaper and half-title verso and describes Stone as “one of the ‘New Mohicans’ who probably could resurrect the great America of Citizen Kane and of Grapes of Wrath”. Yevtushenko also wrote his address and phone number on the front pastedown. Originally published in Soviet Russia in 1985, under the title Pochti Naposledok.

Octavo. Original blue cloth-backed grey paper boards, titles to spine in white. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in a faintly toned jacket.
