Many years ago, I bought a copy of "Mercies". It is a collection of Vanauken's poems.

In the two moves since then the book has been misplaced. I often remember it, go to look for it and then decide to look for a used copy. When I see the price, I sigh and go on to something else.

Anyway, if any of you happen to run across a copy of that book and every want to give it a loving home (for less than the couple of hundred bucks it is going for these days), holler at me please!

I can find A Severe Mercy very cheap, but I'm guessing that's not it.

Is it the same as The Little Lost Marion and Other Mercies? Haven't found that one cheap, but would be handy to know.
