THE BEAST GOD FORGOT TO INVENT. Novellas.

New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, (1999). First Edition. Hardcover. #12 of 250 numbered copies signed by the author. Three novellas; the title story, Westward Ho, and I Forgot to Go to Spain. Three stories of culture and wildness, of men and beasts and where they overlap. A wealthy man retired to the Michigan woods narrates the tale of a younger man decivilized by brain damage. A Michigan Indian wanders Los Angeles, hobnobbing with starlets and screenwriters while he tracks an ersatz Native-American activist who stole his bearskin. An aging "alpha canine," the author of three dozen throwaway biographies, eats dinner with the ex-wife of his overheated youth, and must confront the man he used to be. Green cloth stamped in gold with ribbon marker. From the estate of Beef Torrey, writer, raconteur, and close friend of the author. Fine copy lacking the slipcase. Item #12694
