Description:
New York: Simon & Schuster, 1996. First edition. Hardcover. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with 'Signed by the Author' sticker to front panel. Signed by both authors. What Tom Wolfe did for astronauts and Roger Angell did for baseball, journalists Lindsy Van Gelder and Pamela Robin Brandt do for lesbians in this landmark book. Long misperceived as a separatist coven, a default option, or a sort of ladies' auxiliary to the gay men's movement, lesbian life has achieved a new visibility. This funny, lively, and perceptive book, drawing on more than a hundred interviews with women around the country, the authors have composed an unprecedented portrait of how gay women think, feel, love, and live. Three major "tribal" events; the long-running Michigan Womyn's Music Festival, "Dinah" (the annual Dinah Shore Golf Tournament and party circuit, a mecca for upwardly mobile luppies), and a cross-country trek with the activist Lesbian Avengers en route to the 1994 Stonewall commemoration, provide… Read More

Since than (?) it has gone into twelve editions and has been hailed as sort of modern classic. Carl Van Doren has written concerning it: "Peter Whiffle is piquant, arresting, brightly mad. Whether in Paris or New York he glitters in his setting, and that setting is even more of a triumph than the character of Peter. Mr. Van Vechten deals with it now racily, now poetically. He is full of allusions, of pungency's, of learning in his times. He knows how to laugh, he scorns solemnity, he has filled his book with… Read More

Description:
Chicago: Triumph, 2004. First edition. Hardcover. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. To Joel / Best wishes / Ken Venturi." Ken Venturi was already a highly regarded amateur when he burst onto golf's center stage at the 1956 Masters. The confident 24-year old from San Francisco led the field after the first, second, and third rounds, bidding to become the first amateur to win the prestigious event. He carried a four-stroke lead into Sunday's final round, only to watch in disbelief as the tournament slipped out of his grasp. In a matter of hours, with a disastrous 80, he went from within inches of the sport's pinnacle to the depths of despair, and he hadn't even turned pro yet. That he would do seven months later. The rest, as the saying goes, is history. 272 pages illustrated from photographs.

Description:
New York: Simon Pulse, 2016. First edition. Hardcover. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Following her parents' high-profile divorce, Paige and her brother are forced to move to Idaho with their mother, and Paige doesn't have very high hopes for her new life. The small town they've moved to is nothing compared to the life she left behind in LA. And the situation is made even worse by the drafty old mansion they've rented that's filled with spiders and plenty of other pests that Paige can't even bear to imagine. Pretty soon, strange things start to happen around the house—one can of ravioli becomes a dozen, unreadable words start appearing on the walls, and Paige's little brother begins roaming the house late at night. And there's something not right about the downstairs neighbor who seems to know a lot more than he's letting on. Things only get creepier when she learns about the cult that conducted experimental rituals in the house almost one hundred years earlier. The more Paige investigates,… Read More

Description:
New York: Crowell-Collier Press, 1972. First edition. Hardcover. A very good plus copy in pastel blue cloth over boards with sunning to the extreme edges of the book, in a fine dust jacket. The author's classic first book provides a unique view of reservation life in the late 1960s and early 1970s and the early days of the American Indian Movement. Gerald Vizenor, named to Utne Reader's list of one hundred "people who could change your life," has been a significant force in Native American literature and criticism for over thirty years. In this, his classic first book of essays, Vizenor presents a stark but vital view of reservation life in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a collection that Studies in American Indian Literatures called "memorable portraits of real people who defied yet finally were overcome by the dominant society." Focusing on the people of the northern reservations, particularly the White Earth Reservation where he grew up, Vizenor puts a human face on those desperate and… Read More

Description:
n.p.: Universal Studios, 1970. First edition thus. Paperback. A very good plus to near fine copy. 4to. 183 mimeographed pages. The First Draft of the screenplay by Stephen Geller adapting Vonnegut's most famous book Slaughterhouse-Five. Brad-bound in green Universal Studios card covers, with "First Draft Screenplay" in the upper right hand corner. Production No. 00114. Title page present. The first draft is considerably more elusive than the more common final draft. Upon reading this first draft you wonder if Geller had actually read the book. Significantly different to the final draft which was quite true to Vonnegut's wonderful novel. The film was faithfully directed by George Roy Hill and starred Michael Sacks, Ron Leibman, Valerie Perrine, Holly Near, among others. Hill did a herculean task bringing the power of this classic book to the screen. "Listen: Billie Pilgrim has come unstuck in time." The opening words of the famous novel are the quickest summary of this haunting, funny film. Director… Read More
