Woodcuts of Women / Dagoberto Gilb

With steamy woodcut illustrations (the fundamental reason this collection of short stories was purchased, that plus a $4.99 remainder price for a $12 paperback {Grove, 2001}), the first story by Gilb, a Guggenheim and Whiting Foundation fellow, is puerile to the point of unbearable, but the point of interest is that on the single occasion one served as ghost writer/copy editor for a literary work, as a favor to a friend, the penname chosen for said editor (credited) was, wait for it--Dagoberto Rebop.
