Undated. A handwritten copy of "The Book of Lies" from Tate's collection The Lost Pilot, which was a Yale Younger Poets selection in 1967. Written in ink, with one pencil correction to the text. Inscribed "For Stan Wiater with all best wishes - James Tate 30 August 79." Some offsetting to the paper, indicative of the sheet having been matted and mounted differently than it currently is; near fine, framed. Tate was a Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winning poet, and he and Wiater both lived in western Massachusetts, where they became friends over the years. No Binding. Near Fine.
