ALTMANN'S TONGUE. Stories and a Novella

New York: Knopf, 1994. First edition. Hardcover. Author's first book. Stories and a novella. Evenson has been compared to Cormac McCarthy. "A theater of solitudes. Its moods are chilling, its temperment is cold, and the episodes that construe its twenty-five short fictions and the long fiction, The Sanza Affair, are, in every aspect, brutal--as if brutality was the medium of our relations with one another and the instrument of our will to record the ultimate expression of ourselves." Publisher's dated slip tipped in. Interesting jacket art depicting a dampstain to spine that wraps around the edges. Of course that is part of the design (and, of course, there is no dampstain to this copy). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #ESB10445

Price: $125.00
