Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Stephanie and Jimmy, and Michael in good time, with love, from Ted, July 1977". The recipients, Stephanie Bennett and James Mervis, hosted Ted Hughes during the New York blackout in July of that year, which resulted in city-wide looting. Stephanie Bennett is a film producer who works primarily on music documentaries; she was pregnant with their son Michael in the summer of 1977.
