Description:
Bowling Green: Bowling Green University Popular Press, 1972. First edition. Paperback. A very good clean copy with wear to extremities. John Cawelti was one of the pioneers in establishing an academic respectability to the study of popular culture. As an example, he published "The Six Gun Mystique" which was based on an analysis of the messages contained in the western novels which were very popular for many decades with the public. This copy is warmly inscribed to Ross Macdonald by the author on the title page. With a full-page note in pencil by Ross Macdonald on the front endpaper expanding on a sentence on page 33 regarding "collective dreams." "There are certain dreams from which we wake refreshed," writes Macdonald. ("Perhaps I am having one now--I hope this isn't a dream). The kind of dreams that refuel us giving the sense of having communed with ourselves, I believe, as if we had overheard ourselves talking in our sleep. This is one of my ideas of popular art, where a nation stirs in its… Read More

San Antonio: Trinity University Press, 2012. First edition. Hardcover. A near fine copy in red cloth and photo illustrated boards, issued without dust jacket. Miguel Gandert. Inscribed by the author on the front endpaper. Arturo Madrid's homeland is in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains in northern New Mexico, where each town seems a world apart from the next, and where family histories that extend back four centuries bind the people to the land and to one another.This New Mexico is a land of struggle and dispute, a place in which Madrid's ancestors predate those who landed at Plymouth Rock. In the Country of Empty Crosses is Madrid's complex yet affirming memoir about lands before the advent of passable roads--places such as Tierra Amarilla, San Augustín [insert "u" and note accent on I], and Los Fuertes that were once among the most remote in the nation. Madrid grew up in a family that was doubly removed from the community: as Hispanic Protestants, they were a minority among the region's… Read More

Description:
New York: Random House, 1984. Uncorrected Proof. Paperback. A near fine copy in perfect bound yellow printed wrappers as issued (spine slightly dulled). Norman Mailer peers into the recesses and buried virtues of the modern American male in a brilliant crime novel that transcends genre. When Tim Madden, an unsuccessful writer living on Cape Cod, awakes with a gruesome hangover, a painful tattoo on his upper arm, and a severed female head in his marijuana stash, he has almost no memory of the night before. As he reconstructs the missing hours, Madden runs afoul of retired prizefighters, sex addicts, mediums, former cons, a world-weary ex-girlfriend, and his own father, old now but still a Herculean figure. Stunningly conceived and vividly composed, Tough Guys Don't Dance represents Mailer at the peak of his powers. Basis for the big screen film directed by Mailer that starred Ryan O'Neal and Isabella Rossellini.

Description:
Los Angeles: Sun & Moon Press, 1988. First edition thus. Hardcover. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. The Zuni folksinger Painted Turtle first made her appearance in Clarence Major's award-winning and critically acclaimed novel, My Amputations (1986). In this simply told new work, Painted Turtle is at the center of a lyrical tale narrated by Baldy, a Navajo guitar player. She tells of her struggles, from her childhood experiences living on the Zuni reservation to the time of her performances on the grimy cantina circuit throughout the American Southwest. Baldy's story is a quiet love story, a tale of wonderment. But it is also a tale of a quest for self-realization, the quest of an unwed mother of twin boys who finds herself an outsider and the cause of conflict among her family, her clan, her tribe. Against all odds, Painted Turtle struggles desperately to keep her integrity while remaining in touch with the deep rhythms of her heritage. And through her music seeks a cure for the… Read More

Description:
New York: Farrar , Straus and Giroux, 1982. Uncorrected Proof. Paperback. A near fine copy bound in the original green perfect bound printed wrappers with black lettering. Malamud's last novel is a modern-day dystopian fantasy, set in a time after a thermonuclear war prompts a second flood -- a radical departure from Malamud's previous fiction. The novel's protagonist is paleolosist Calvin Cohn, who had been attending to his work at the bottom of the ocean when the Devastation struck, and who alone survived. This rabbi's son -- a "marginal error" -- finds himself shipwrecked with an experimental chimpanzee capable of speech, to whom he gives the name Buz. Soon other creatures appear on their island-baboons, chimps, five apes, and a lone gorilla. Cohn works hard to make it possible for God to love His creation again, and his hopes increase as he encounters the unknown and the unforeseen in this strange new world. With God's Grace, Malamud took a great risk, and it paid off. The novel's fresh and… Read More

Though his best known flower images were in black and white, this book reveals his genius in color. The photographs here range from images of the early 1980s to many taken in the months before his death. The latter, in particular, are astounding in their intensity; here one finds both erotic drama and absolute clarity of composition, Mapplethorpe's gift at its most bold and uncompromising.

Description:
New York: Public Affairs, 2010. First edition. hardcover. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. The wild turbulence of his music mirroring the swings in his popular acclaim, makes Van Morrison one of the most perplexing and mysterious figures in modern music. He willfully resists simple categorization: he is as much a bluesman as a Celtic soul singer, a rock-and-roller as a folk singer, a diva as a balladeer. His greatest songs are at one moment his own, at another his versions of those by others. The author takes us through the extraordinary and unclassifiable moments in Morrison's career, beginning in 1965 and continuing in full force to this day. It provides a journey between the transcendent and the wretched years of Morrison's work as utterly forgettable. The book travels between the high points and sublime dislocations in which the singer reaches an extreme musical threshold, and it leaps the chasms as it tracks perhaps the most enigmatic and revelatory performer of our time.

Verona: Edizioni Valdonega, 1980. One of 1500. Hardcover. A fine copy in cloth with spine label in red and gold stamping with the original cardboard slipcase. 4to. Mardersteig, 1892-1977, moved to Switzerland in 1922, founded a hand press, the Officina Bodoni, and began producing books. In 1927 he moved his press to Verona, Italy, partly in order to print a state-funded edition of the complete works of Gabriele D'Annunzio, which was completed in 1936. Mardersteig quickly developed a reputation for very fine typographical work, and for his scholarly approach to book design and production. He printed with a Dingler hand press on hand or mould-made papers or vellum and often had his books bound in quarter vellum or leather with a decorated paper on the boards, in the tradition of European private presses. Mardersteig was responsible for designing several typefaces for use at the press; Dante, Griffo and Zeno among them. All based on Humanist types of the early years of European printing.

Fifteen years later, on the eve of America's entry into World War II, Maria is an associate producer at Mercury Pictures, trying to keep her personal and professional lives from falling apart.
