Poems, with paintings and drawings by Donald Teskey. Limited edition of 350 numbered, clothbound copies, of which 300 are for sale.
Signed by the author.
Rising Late is printed on Mohawk Superfine and casebound in linen with blind embossed title in a Pergamenata wraparound.
This is the seventh title in a greatly admired series. The Last Walk and The Riverbank Field by Seamus Heaney (and Martin Gale), Conversation in the Mountains by John Banville (and Donald Teskey) and A Man’s World by Brian Friel (and Basil Blackshaw) are out of print.
A limited number of signed copies of Somewhere the Wave by Derek Mahon (and Bernadette Kiely) and Wayside Shrines by Paul Muldoon (and Keith Wilson) are still available.
. . . a work which will likely appeal to collectors . . . as well as anyone interested in new poetry, is Derek Mahon’s beautiful, Rising Late, with paintings and drawings by Donald Teskey: these lustrous new poems go looking for, and sometimes find, “a stir of soul stuff in the atmosphere.”
