Description:
Livingston: Clark City Press, 1992. Advance Uncorrected Proof. Paperback. A fine copy in perfect bound cream colored wrappers with titles in green and black. In a novel spanning the years 1978-1991, Finney ( Winterchill ) considers the thorny question of what role the past should play in the present. The book's 14 chapters, which read like a series of third-person short stories, probe the distinct points of view of three protagonists: placid, boring Billy; his bitter and curt sister, Ann; and their efficient, patronizing cousin, Kay. All three are somewhat lost, grappling as they pass through their 30s with memories incarnated in the fragment of a childhood jump-rope rhyme that gives the book its title. Twice-divorced Billy still optimistically searches for love, widowed Ann struggles with two teenage daughters, and Kay builds a successful business and solves everyone else's problems but lacks a fulfilling life of her own. They have troubled relationships with their aging, far-from-perfect parents,… Read More

San Morino: Patrons of Italian Culture, 2007. First edition. hardcover. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Signed and inscribed by the editor Gloria Ricci Lothrop on the title page. An anthology of essays on the Italian settlers' experience in the American West. Introduction by Andrew F. Rolle. It is not by mere chance that two of the main symbols of Los Angeles are linked to stories of Italian migrants to the American West. Olvera Street was once known as "Wine Street." It is there that the early Italian community operated wineries and where its social meeting place was built. In another sector of Los Angeles the famous Watts Towers still point toward the sky fulfilling the dream of the Italian artist Simone Rodia. 345 pages with index. Illustrated from photographs.

Princeton and Oxford: Princeton University Press, 2004. First edition. Hardcover. A fine, crisp copy/a fine crisp dust jacket. Though the Netherlands has been the site of vigorous literary activity since at least the Beweging van Vijftig (Movement of the Fifties) poets, the status of Dutch as a "minor" language spoken by only fifteen million people has kept its rich poetry more or less a secret. This volume brings the work of six of the most important modern and contemporary Dutch poems to light. They are: Cees Nooteboom, Gerrit Achterberg, Hugo Claus, Sybren Polet, Hans Faverey, and Rutger Kopland, a virtual who's who of Dutch poets. 105pp.

An unforgettable debut novel, Landsman is the Civil War story of Elias Abrams - orphan son of an indentured Jewish immigrant - who flees his sordid New Orleans gangland home to enlist in the Third Louisiana Infantry.

Description:
Austin: Eakin Press, 1987. First edition. Hardcover. A very good copy in a very good dust jacket. Texas writers have seldom managed to broaden the significance of their work beyond local experience. Yet, imbedded in the myth is a wealth of resources which McMurtry has utilized. His fusion of setting and characters has created powerful, touching narratives about people trying to cope in compelling but usually unpredictable and changing environments. The author sees McMurtry as one of the leading critics of Texas society and fiction. At a time when some writers are shoring up land values with more mythology, McMurtry, she concludes, has his own way of acknowledging the conflict. 81 pages with index.

New York: St. Martin's Press, 1999. 7th Printing. Hardcover. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. 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. Written with New York Times bestselling author Don Davis, The Last Man on the Moon is the astronaut story never before told - about the fear, love and… Read More

An old Comanche named Starlight comes from Oklahoma to Texas with eight patriots and demands of old Tom Bird the largest of his buffalo, which the indians eventually kill, in less than graceful manner, and then head home. Such is the bare frame of this remarkable story, filled with remembranes of old raids, narrow escapes, days of intense confrontation and bold blood, now gone. "It is a classic in its idea," says A. C. Greene, "and an artistic masterwork in its fulfillment." The text is handsomely illustrated with drawings by the late John Groth. 59 pages.

Foreward by Ted Turner. Entrepreneur and media mogul Ted Turner has commanded global attention for his dramatic personality, his founding of CNN, his marriage to Jane Fonda, and his company's merger with Time Warner. But his green resume has gone largely ignored, even while his role as a pioneering eco-capitalist means more to Turner than any other aspect of his legacy. He currently owns more than two million acres of private land (more than any other individual in America), and his bison herd exceeds 50,000 head, the largest in history. He donated $1 billion to help save the UN, and has recorded dozens of other firsts with regard to wildlife conservation, fighting nukes, and assisting the poor. He calls global warming the most dire threat facing humanity, and says that the tycoons of the future will be minted in the… Read More

London: Cape, 1953. First edition. Hardcover. A very good copy in yellow and green cloth in a very good jacket with some foxing to the verso. William McLaren. This book is not a sequel to 'Merry Hall'. Its accent is less on the garden than on the house itself. When the author arrived, he found Merry Hall in a sorry state, shabby, neglected, bearing many traces of the vandalism of previous owners long ago. How he brought order out of chaos, how he gradually opened windows and let in the light, and how he finally banished the Edwardian ghosts of his predecessors, all this makes some of the most entertaining reading which Mr Nichols has yet given us.

She takes you along on the emotional journey she and her husband, Richard (Dick) Goodwin embarked upon in the last years of his life. The Goodwins' last great adventure involved finally opening the more than three hundred boxes of letters, diaries, documents, and memorabilia that Dick had saved for more than fifty years. They soon realized they had before them an unparalleled personal time capsule of the 1960s, illuminating public and private moments of a decade when individuals were powered by the conviction they could make a difference; a time, like today, marked by struggles for racial and economic justice, a time when lines were drawn and loyalties tested.
