1 Crumley, James One To Count Cadence
New York Random House 1969 First Edition Cloth SIGNED by the Author
Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Bound in full brown cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. Blue-gray topstain. Octavo. 338pps. Stated First Printing. There is very faint dustspotting to the closed page-edges and a previous owner's name is neatly penned on the front pastedown (behind the jacket-flap). Otherwise clean, tight, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no dog-ears, crimping, thumbing, or creasing. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is mildly rubbed with light general edgewear; the original price (6.95) is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the ffep. A very nice, collector's-quality copy. ".The time is the late summer of 1962. The place is Clark Air Force Base in the Philippine Islands. A new sergeant, 'Slag' Krummel, arrives from the States to take over the 721st Communication Security Detachment, a collection of dissatisfied, rebellious enlistees. Narrated by Krummel, 'One To Count Cadence' begins as a story of the peacetime Army, the drinking and whoring, the defiance of officers and regulations, the camaraderie of lonely men and women with too much time on their hands. Comic, absurd, violent, 'One To Count Cadence' is a mirror of that part of a generation reared on violence, actors in the American wars of the 1960's who can no longer believe in the myths and institutions of their country. Exploring with fidelity and compassion the men who make war and are, like all of us, its victims, it is least of all a war novel. It is a book about friendship -- especially that of Krummel and Private Joe Morning, 'The best of us, the most damned of us all.'."
