Book Description Borzoi/Alfred A. Knopf, New York, NY, 1994. Soft Cover. Condition: New. First Edition, 16th Printing. BRAND NEW copy. Illustrated soft cover/NF. For this volume, poet Marge Piercy (1936 -) presents her verse in two parts --- Hand Games and The Lunar Cycle. The former contain what the author describes as her "the daily bread", and as such, "are the artifacts of loving in a personal way, . of planting and harvesting in the earth and on paper, . they speak of new friendships and mourning the death of friends . of nuclear power plants and suicide, of fat and of street hassling." Part II is a homage to the Lunar calender which has become an intimate part of the author's life. The title of this collection, The Moon is Always Female, is taken from the lead poem in the second part. The poem "Cho-Cho" (in part one) is of a feline friend of some Persian ancestry with green eyes: " At the Animal Disposal League/ You reached through the bars./." On the cover is an enigmatic green-eyed, "Cheshire" cat (a Chinese brush and ink drawing by Shen Chou, Ming Dynasty, 1494) in the moon. Fine copy. Seller Inventory # 001006
