One Life at a Time, Please, Abbey, Edward
1 Abbey, Edward One Life at a Time, Please
New York, NY, U.S.A. Henry Holt & Company 1988 0805006028 / 9780805006025 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover 
As New in an As New dustjacket. Cherry-red boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is gilt-stamped. 225pps. A flawless collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Absolutely no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is equally fine; the original price is intact.

"...Warhorse, gadfly, iconoclast, storyteller, stylist, naturalist -- there is no simple category to contain the vibrant prose of Edward Abbey. And this snappy collection of essays displays the author of Desert Solitaire and The Monkey Wrench Gang at the height of his curmudgeonry. The range is wide: from stories about cattlemen, fellow writers, new and old cities -- especially a fresh look at San Francisco and the Robinson Jeffers land to the south -- and the inconsistencies of the technocrats, to thoughts on sin and redemption. Never has Abbey been sharper and funnier. The prose sparkles like the bright midday sun off desert sandstone."

"...The story of a mother and a son, and a relationship that covers a lifetime and beyond. It explores the question: What would you do if you could spend one more day with a lost loved one? As a child, Charley 'Chick' Benetto was told by his father, 'You can be a mama's boy or a daddy's boy, but you can't be both.' So he chooses his father, only to see the man disappear when Charley is on the verge of adolescence. Decades later, Charley is a broken man. His life has been crumbled by alcohol and regret. He loses his job. He leaves his family. He hits bottom after discovering his only daughter has shut him out of her wedding. And he decides to take his own life. He makes a midnight ride to his small hometown, with plans to do himself in. But upon failing even to do that, he staggers back to his old house, only to make an astonishing discovery. His mother -- who died eight years earlier -- is still living there, and welcomes him home as if nothing ever happened. What follows is the one 'ordinary' day so many of us yearn for, a chance to make good with a lost parent, to explain the family secrets, and to seek forgiveness. Somewhere between this life and the next, Charley learns the astonishing things he never knew about his mother and her sacrifices. And he tries, with her tender guidance, to put the crumbled pieces of his life back together."

Auel’s magnificent storytelling we are taken back to the dawn of modern humans, and with a girl named Ayla we are swept up in the harsh and beautiful Ice Age world they shared with the ones who called themselves The Clan of the Cave Bear. A natural disaster leaves the young girl wandering alone in an unfamiliar and dangerous land until she is found by a woman of the Clan, people very different from her own kind. To them, blond, blue-eyed Ayla looks peculiar and ugly -- she is one of the Others, those who have moved into their ancient homeland; but Iza cannot leave the girl to die and takes her with them. Iza and Creb, the old Mog-ur, grow to love her, and as Ayla learns the ways of the Clan and Iza’s way of healing, most come to accept her. But the brutal and proud youth who is destined to become their next leader sees her differences as a threat to his authority. He develops a deep and abiding hatred for the strange girl of the Others who lives in their midst, and is determined to get his revenge."

Bahr's powerfully written first novel, a story with much more depth of character than Shaara's 'The Killer Angels'.

"'The Black Flower' is a story not only of war, but of men and women seeking redemption, who are stripped of all that anchors them, and who at last turn to honor and courage and love. At twenty-six, Bushrod Carter is already an old soldier, a veteran of all his regiment's campaigns since Shiloh. Now, on an Indian summer afternoon in 1864, Bushrod finds himself in line of battle once again, on the plain below the obscure village of Franklin, Tennesee. The dark flower of his destiny is opening in the twilight, just as it has on other fields, and Bushrod must pass once again under its shadow if he is to see tomorrow. In the madness and violence of a great battle and its aftermath, Bushrod Carter tries to act his part as well as he can. He must confront his soul and learn from his comrades and from a young girl struggling with her own harsh past."

Near Fine in a Good dust jacket. Bound in black and gray cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in orange. Orange topstain. Octavo. 536pps. First Printing.

"...Augie, the exuberant narrator-hero, is a poor Chicago boy growing up during the Depression. His mother, deserted by her husband, has taken in a tough old boarder, Grandma Lausch, who rules the family -- slow-witted Georgie, ambitious Simon, super-observant Augie -- like a benevolent despot. Augie's friends set out to make their fortunes in various ways, but he sees himself as chosen for a special destiny. A 'born recruit,' he makes himself available for a series of occupations, then proudly rejects each one as unworthy. Instead of allowing himself to be drafted, he takes matters into his own hands. The choices that he makes independently are -- to say the least -- eccentric. 'Life among the Machiavellians' is the subtitle Mr. Bellow privately chooses to describe the ups and downs of Augie's unsteady life. Augie's own oddity is reflected in the companions he encounters -- plungers, schemers, risk-takers, 'hole and corner' operators like the would-be tycoon Einhorn or the would-be siren Thea, who travels with an eagle trained to hunt small creatures."

New York Carroll & Graf 2000 0786707720 / 9780786707720 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Gray paper over boards with a black, gilt-stamped backstrip. Octavo. 182pps. There is mild rubbing to the spine-ends and a remainder mark at the base of the textblock (unobtrusive, under the heel of the spine). Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has touches of rubbing; the original price is intact. A nice copy of Benioff's highly regarded first novel. Made into a film by Spike Lee (2002), starring Edward Norton. ".An absorbing novel of crime, its terrifying consequences, and a bond that redefines the friendship of three restless young men. Wall Street speculators, the Manhattan downtown club scene, Russian gangsters, immigrant neighborhoods -- all the elements in the urban turf of this finely crafted contemporary crime novel wed danger with excitement and possibility. They're the rewards that Monty Brogan, who stands at the center of the moral glare in this tale, has already lost, just as he's lost his Corvette, and the 'sway' that opened the doors of exclusive night spots and guaranteed him courtside seats at Madison Square Garden. Tomorrow Monty's traveling by bus, to the federal prison in Otisville, for seven years. He's afraid, and all he'd ever really wanted when he grew up was to be a fireman. With the pulse of the city in its prose, this debut novel follows Monty through the twenty-four hours of his last day out. At the same time, it illuminates the worlds, and souls, of his two best friends: Frank Slattery, an edgy bond trader who gambles daily with financial ruin, and Jakob Elinsky, an English teacher who clings to illusions as he compromises his ideals. Friends since their high school days, the three of them nostalgically share a past, but warily they confront a future that can no longer accommodate their adolescent dreams. They meet. They drink, and talk, go clubbing, dance, drink, and remember. What neither Slattery nor Jakob know, however, is that Monty has a plan. It's a shocker." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
