Description:
London: Faber & Faber, 2005. First edition. Hardcover. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Dave Roberts. 12mo. This copy is signed by the author on the title page. A strange beast: a book of bones and stones, of vengeful hermits and wayward hearses, of junior Rip Van Winkles and resurrectionists. From the faintly weird to the fiercely eccentric, and from the everyday to the surreal, the stories read like cautionary tales and modern-day fables and the characters make for peculiar but exquisite company. By turns funny, gothic, moving and sad, this collection bears testimony once again to one of the most imaginative and original writers at work today. 173pp.

New York: Riverhead, 2014. First edition. Paperback. A very good copy that would be fine without the small whole at the bottom of the rear cover due to the removal of a sticker. An advance uncorrected proof bound in yellow perfect bound wrappers with French flaps. A fictional exploration of the 1976 attempted assassination of reggae superstar Bob Marley and its bloody aftermath. James, a Jamaican author, deftly chronicles the lives of unforgettable characters, gunmen, drug dealers, former girlfriends, CIA agents, even ghosts over the course of three decades as they roam the streets of 1970s Kingston, dominate the crack houses of 1980s New York, and unlimately reemerge in the radically altered Jamaica of the 1990s. Along the way, they learn that evil does indeed cast long shadows, that justice and retribution are inextricably linked, and that no one can truly escape his fate.

Description:
New York: Blue Rider Press, 2015. First edition. Hardcover. A nearly fine copy in a nearly fine dust jacket. Signed by Jewel on a special bound in sheet. When Jewel's first album, 'Pieces of You', topped the charts in 1995, her emotional voice and vulnerable performance were groundbreaking. Drawing comparisons to Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell, a singer-songwriter of her kind had not emerged in decades. Now, with more than thirty million albums sold worldwide, Jewel tells the story of her life, and the lessons learned from her experience and her music. Living on a homestead in Alaska, Jewel learned to yodel at age five, and joined her parents' entertainment act, working in hotels, honky-tonks, and biker bars. Behind a strong-willed family life with an emphasis on music and artistic talent, however, there was also instability, abuse, and trauma. At age fifteen, she moved out and tasked herself with a mission: to see if she could avoid being the kind of statistic that her past indicated for her future.… Read More
