Free Book Friday #3: Octavio Paz; James Wright (audio)

Well I uckfupped the posting & missed my Friday deadline, but here it is, better late than never: this weekend's free book giveaway is a hefty goodie: Sor Juana, or, The Traps of Faith, by Octavio Paz. This is the paperback 1988 first edition put out by the Belknap Press at Harvard. It's in English; the translator is Margaret Sayers Peden. I bought it for fifteen bucks back in May of 1991, and it's a good clean copy.

I'm also giving away an audio tape (for those of you who still use that technology) of James Wright reading at the Guggenheim on 3/20/64 and 10/28/78. This was produced as part of the Academy of American Poets' Audio Archive; I somehow have two copies and so it's easy to let this one go to a good home.

Remember: you may claim either item (or both) for free by posting a response here, to this blog post, or on Facebook (I cross-post there after this post appears). I will ship your item(s) by Media Mail; all I ask is that you reimburse me for the postage.

Because I'm a day late posting this, we'll give everyone until Tuesday morning to stake a claim. Next week I'll try to get back on my regular schedule.

Pick me! Pick me! I want to lay dibs on the Wright tape if someone else hasn't already done so. Kate

I'd love the Octavio Paz if no one else has claimed it!
