Sutton, Irma L. REQUIEM FOR A FINE LADY
New York, N. Y.: Carlton Press, Inc., (1978). 0806209410 / 9780806209418 First edition. Hardcover. Fine in sand-colored cloth with black spine titles; in a lightly rubbed and shelfworn pictorial dust jacket. A very scarce book from this subsidy publisher, whose publications are traditionally issued in very tiny quantities.
A slender volume of 40 pages of poetry by the black Georgia-born poet, teacher, counselor, mother, and grandmother. These poems are a celebration of womanhood, life, and love reflecting the pride and oppression of the African heritage experience.
