Description:
London / New York: Verso, 2019. First edition. Hardcover. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. 'Where are you from?' was the question hounding Hazel Carby as a girl in post-World War II London. One of the so-called brown babies of the Windrush generation, born to a Jamaican father and Welsh mother, Carby's place in her home, her neighbourhood, and her country of birth was always in doubt. Emerging from this setting, Carby untangles the threads connecting members of her family to each other in a web woven by the British Empire across the Atlantic. We meet Carby's working-class grandmother Beatrice, a seamstress challenged by poverty and disease. In England, she was thrilled by the cosmopolitan fantasies of empire, by cities built with slave-trade profits, and by street peddlers selling fashionable Jamaican delicacies. In Jamaica, we follow the lives of both the 'white Carbys' and the 'black Carbys', as Mary Ivey, a free woman of colour, whose children are fathered by Lilly Carby, a British soldier who… Read More

Description:
Berkeley: Counterpoint, 2014. First edition. Hardcover. A fine copy in dust jacket. Don Carpenter was one of the finest novelists in the West. His first novel, A Hard Rain Falling, published in 1966, has been championed by Richard Price, and George Pelecanos called it "a masterpiece . . . the definitive juvenile-delinquency novel and a damning indictment of our criminal justice system." His novel A Couple of Comedians is thought by some the best novel about Hollywood ever written. Fridays at Enrico's is the story of four writers living in Northern California and Portland during the early, heady days of the Beat scene, a time of youth and opportunity. This story mixes the excitement of beginning with the melancholy of ambition, often thwarted and never satisfied. Loss of innocence is only the first price you pay. These are people, men and women, tender with expectation, at risk and in love. Carpenter also carefully draws a portrait of these two remarkable places, San Francisco and Portland, in the… Read More

New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, 1988. First trade edition. Hardcover. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. By the time of his early death in 1988, Raymond Carver had established himself as one of the great practitioners of the American short story, a writer who had not only found his own voice but imprinted it in the imaginations of thousands of readers. Where I'm Calling From, his last collection, encompasses classic stories from Cathedral, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, and earlier Carver volumes, along with seven new works previously unpublished in book form. Together, these 37 stories give us a superb overview of Carver's life work and show us why he was so widely imitated but never equaled.

Ink ownership signature to front blank with a Seattle Bookstore label to the front pastedown with the price of $2.50. First issue, no jacket. The fictional portrayal of New Mexico's first Catholic archbishop, Jean-Baptiste Lamy (called Jean-Marie Latour in the book) is beautifully written in Cather's sparse but descriptive language. Its chapters—a series of tableaus in Latour's life—are based on Cather's own research and travels, and the many places she describes are real: Acoma Pueblo, Chimayó, Taos, and the Lamy quarry that provided the ochre sandstone for the St. Francis Cathedral in Santa Fe. Garrett Peck examines how Cather's visits to Santa Fe with her partner Edith Lewis in 1925 and 1926 inspired her to research and write the novel. Cather and Lewis, a professional editor who assisted Cather… Read More

Inscribed on a sheet pasted to the front endpaper: "In memory of the 40th anniversary / of the first lunar walk / and in honor of your ccontribution / to aviation safety / Warm Regards / Gene Cernan." Eugene Cernan was a unique American who came of age as an astronaut during the most exciting and dangerous decade of spaceflight. His career spanned the entire Gemini and Apollo programs, from being the first person to spacewalk all the way around our world to the moment when he left man's last footprint on the Moon as commander of Apollo 17. Between those two historic events lay more adventures than an ordinary person could imagine as Cernan repeatedly put his life, his family and everything he held dear on the altar of an obsessive desire.
