THE BEAST GOD FORGOT TO INVENT. Novellas

New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, (2000). First Edition. Hardcover. One of 300 numbered copies signed by the author on the limitation page bound in after the stiff front endpaper. 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. From the estate of Beef Torrey, writer, raconteur, and close friend of the author. A fine copy / a fine dust jacket. Item #12695
