Medallions from Anyte of Tegea, Meleager of Gadara, the Anacreontea by Richard Aldington

@tastytea ah that's too bad; the premise sounds interesting but I think if someone's going to meaningfully discuss diversity of tactics, that's a really important clarification to make? I'm curious what you end up thinking of it overall

salt marsh finished reading Zami, a new spelling of my name

Zami, a new spelling of my name (Paperback, 1983, Crossing Press)

4 star
