Resurrection of the Snails by Nicholas Rinaldi

The Resurrection of the Snails by Nicholas Rinaldi. 1977 John F. Blair, paperback edition, 61 pages. Rinaldi's fiction had been compared to Mailer, Heller, and Styron, and he was a beloved professor. This was Rinaldi's first poetry collection.

Condition: Good. Inscribed on the half title page and signed by the author on the title page. Shelf worn, ghost of a cup of the cover, damp stain on the top of some of the pages at the end.

"Don't frown, don't file your nails.

Look, love, if you want to be cross, there are better ways.

Here: throw this chair."
