Yes, The Continual Condition was a bit of a disappointment. It was expensive for such a thin book, and the fact that over 20% of the poems had been printed before in earlier poem collections did'nt make it any better.

I'm selling the Continual Condition ARC, which has a different cover than the final published book.
