New York: Random House, (1977). First edition. Hardcover. This copy is signed and inscribed by Shelby Foote to actor J.E.Freeman who played the role of Podjo in the movie "Memphis" which is based on this book, "For J.E. Freeman / who plays Podjo / & plays him well / from Shelby Foote / Memphis 15 Nov 90." Here, in this novel, adapted for the screen by Larry McMurtry, a magisterial historian of the Civil War charts its distant repercussions in the streets of the contemporary South. By turns wryly comic, ribald, and chilling, Shelby Foote's novel is at once a convincing thriller and a powerful tragicomedy of race. A near fine copy in a very good plus jacket with a closed tear to the rear panel. Item #14230
