AL ALVAREZ
The poet and critic signs a copy of his book about his mountain climbing partner, Mo Anthoine.
Book signed: "Al Alvarez/1990", 152 pages, 5½x8¾. Feeding the Rat: Profile of a Climber, by Al Alvarez. London: Bloomsbury, 1990. Hardcover. Signed on half title page. Al Alvarez (b. 1929) is an English poet, critic, and writer on diverse subjects. He abandoned an academic career to pursue a journalistic one, believing it allowed him more freedom. His writings in The Observer and his 1962 anthology, The New Poetry, championed new poets and especially his close friend Sylvia Plath. His book about suicide, The Savage God (1972), acquires poignancy from Alvarez' sadness that he missed the signs of Plath's impending suicide. Alvarez' books include one on poker, one of his passions, and the one signed here. Feeding the Rat is the story of Mo Anthoine, legendary amateur climber and climbing equipment entrepreneur, with whom Alvarez often scaled heights. Dust cover lightly soiled and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
