Chicago: Obsidian Press, 1961. 1st. Original wrappers. 8vo. 40 pp. stiff yellow wrappers with brown lettering. Uneven darkening to covers; a near fine copy of the author's scarce first book. Number 2 in 'The New Frontier Series in American Literature.' George Harold "Hal" Bennett (1936 - 2004) also wrote under the pen names Harriet Janeway and John D. Revere. He has won the Faulkner Award, as well as Playboy's most promising writer of the year. His books are sometimes compared to Mark Twain's style of satire, but contain a much stronger sexual tone. Subsequent to Bennett's move to Mexico in 1956, he wrote this collection of poems, sometimes bawdy, often noble but at all times presenting a sensitive picture of his Mexico. 'House on Hay,' the verse play, delicately carries forth the love motif first set forth in his poems. (Inventory #: 17658)
