Description:
New York: The Dial Press, 1971. First edition. Paperback. A fine copy. Proof in the original beige printed wrappers. Basis for the award-winning television movie, broadcast on CBS in 1974. The film holds importance as one of the first films to deal with African-American characters with depth and sympathy. It preceded the ground-breaking television miniseries Roots by four years. The story depicts the struggles of African-Americans as seen through the eyes of the narrator, a woman named Jane Pittman. She tells of the major events of her life from the time she was a young slave girl in the American South at the end of the Civil War. The film culminates with her joining in the American civil rights movement in 1962 at age 110. Binding flaw, two indentations across back cover, where a bundle was bound. Very uncommon format of the author's most famous book.

Description:
New York: Knopf, 1984. First edition, Uncorrected Proof. Paperback. A fine copy perfect bound in the original powder blue printed wrappers, as issued. This classic guide, from the renowned novelist and professor, has helped transform generations of aspiring writers into masterful writers—and will continue to do so for many years to come. John Gardner was almost as famous as a teacher of creative writing as he was for his own works. In this practical, instructive handbook, based on the courses and seminars that he gave, he explains, simply and cogently, the principles and techniques of good writing. Gardner's lessons, exemplified with detailed excerpts from classic works of literature, sweep across a complete range of topics—from the nature of aesthetics to the shape of a refined sentence. Written with passion, precision, and a deep respect for the art of writing, Gardner's book serves by turns as a critic, mentor, and friend. Anyone who has ever thought of taking the step from reader to… Read More

Description:
New York: Knopf, 1984. First edition. Paperback. A very good copy with darkening (sunning) to spine and extremities. Uncorrected Proof. The story of Gilgamesh, an ancient epic poem written on clay tablets in a cuneiform alphabet, is as fascinating and moving as it is crucial to our ability to fathom the time and the place in which it was written. Gardner's version restores the poetry of the text and the lyricism that is lost in the earlier, almost scientific renderings. The principle theme of the poem is a familiar one: man's persistent and hopeless quest for immortality. From the literary library of Robert & Enid Cohen.

Description:
New York: Knopf, 1986. Advance Uncorrected Proofs. A near fine copy in the original green perfect bound wrappers with black stamping to front cover and spine. Uncorrected Proofs with info sheet taped to front cover. Novelist Nicholas Delbanco, Gardner's literary executor, has taken it upon himself to give to posthumous (and not intended to be published) Gardner manuscripts the pitiless light of day. Stillness, an autobiographical portrait, was, says Delbanco, undertaken by Gardner "as a process of therapy, as an exercise of recall engaged in with his wife." It's a picture of Gardner's first marriage: a whip-sharp woman, with nowhere special to put her natural talents, is married to a charismatic and rich but plodding novelist ("Very handsome. . .his prematurely silver hair flowing down his back. . .his English-Irish-Welsh voice singing through language . . .People wept, listening"). It is, in its mixture of vanity and complete self-absorption, a document of personal honesty—but to read it as… Read More

A monumental and monumentally original work of fiction.The narrator of the book is a distinguished man in his fifties, William Frederick Kohler, a professor at a Midwestern university. His principle subject, the Third Reich. He has just completed his massive magnum opus, Guilt and Innocence in Hitler's Germany. All that remains to write is an introduction. Kohler sits down to write a self-congratulatory text and finds himself unaccountably blocked. He begins instead to write an entirely other book, another history, that of the historian himself. What he writes is the complete opposite of his clearly argued, causally determined history of the Reich. It is as subjective and private as history is objective and public, as apparently shapeless and stagnant as history is ordered and directrive. It is chaotic, obscure, full of lies and disguises,… Read More

Description:
Seattle: University of Washington Press, 2021. First edition. Hardcover. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket with a store sticker to front panel (University Bookstore). Inscribed on the title page by Gastineau "Go Dawgs! / Mike Gastineau." In 1984 the University of Washington Huskies won every game but one, ranking second in national polls. For most coaches, such a season would be a career pinnacle. But for Don James second place motivated him to set aside what he knew about football and rethink the game. James made radical changes to his coaching philosophy, from recruitment to becoming one of the first college teams willing to blitz on any down and in any situation. His new approach initially failed, yet it finally culminated in one of the most explosive teams in college football history. In Fear No Man, Mike Gastineau recounts the riveting story of Don James and the national championship team he built. Undefeated, the 1991 Huskies outscored opponents by an average of 31 points per game on their way… Read More
