Early Sandra Cisneros Appearance

Banyan Anthology 2

Notes: An anthology based on the Banyan Reading series in Chicago, with contributions from poets who read their work from 1977 to 1980. One of the contributors is a young Sandra Cisneros, who had published only a chapbook (Bad Boys, 1980) at the time. Her section (p. 54–57) includes a short statement on her work (probably not published anywhere else) and two poems, "Josie Bliss" and "Six Brothers", which would reappear in her collection My Wicked, Wicked Ways. Other contributors include Galway Kinnell, Tess Gallagher, and Ai.

253 pages.

Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing). A near fine copy in printed yellow wrappers (it looks more like an uncorrected proof than the finished book that it is). Signed by Cisneros at her contribution.

Publication: Chicago: Banyan Press, 1982.
