Synopsis:

The searing collection, a cult favorite for decades, by the late Thomas James

I will last forever. I am not impatient―
My skin will wait to greet its old complexions.
I'll lie here till the world swims back again.
―from "Mummy of a Lady Named Jemutesonekh"

Thomas James's Letters to a Stranger―originally published in 1973, shortly before James's suicide―has become one of the underground classics of contemporary poetry. In this new edition, with an introduction by Lucie Brock-Broido and four of James's poems never before published in book form, this fraught and moving masterpiece is at last available.


Letters to a Stranger is a new book in the Graywolf Poetry Re/View Series, edited by Mark Doty, dedicated to bringing essential books of contemporary American poetry back into print.

About the Author:

Thomas James (1946–74) was from Joliet, Illinois. Letters to a Stranger, which won the Theodore Roethke Prize from Poetry Northwest in 1969, was his only book of poetry.
