Happy Third Man Books Frank Stanford Release Day!

Posted by Third Man on 21 July 2015

Hidden Water is now available! Also check out the Special Edition Hidden Water package! Both will feature a download of never-before-heard audio of Frank Stanford reciting his own work.

“The big event in poetry for 2015 will likely be the long-awaited resurrection of Frank Stanford, a legendary badass from Arkansas, much of whose poetry has been unavailable since his suicide at the age of 29 in 1978… Stanford was a hell of a metaphor-maker and simile-slinger, and could cast a spell of extreme intensity with a flick of his wrist.”—NPR.org

We couldn't be more thrilled to bring you this collection of unpublished poems, drafts, never before seen photos, and correspondences between Stanford, Allen Ginsberg, Pulitzer Prize winning poet Alan Dugan, and more. So, to celebrate, we've released a few companion goodies... 2 Frank Stanford buttons, a Third Man Books ball point pen, and a Janaka Stucky Button. (Oh, and if you haven't picked up a Third Man Books tote bag, we've got those too!)

On TOP of all that good stuff, for a limited time, we are offering 10% off your ENTIRE Third Man Store order with the inclusion of a Third Man Books title in your cart. Simply use the code "WELLREAD" at check-out. Exclusions apply.
