Poems of Z - Paul Hyland

Bloodaxe Books, 1982, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.

Includes a laid in typed poem on the author's headed paper along with a photocopied proof from Skelton's Press of the same poem with the author's note and signature. From the cover: “Z was an Eastern Bloc spy who at one time operated in London. He was recalled home, probably to be retired, and nothing further has been heard of him: all that we have to go on is a notebook of 40 startling poems that he left behind. Even his designation ‘Z’ seems to have been a private code, for a self which he kept even more secret than his undercover work — the self revealed in the poems, which are as much about his family and his childhood on a farm in Eastern Europe as they are about his espionage activities.
