Description:

Very Good+ in Wraps: shows indications of very light use: just a touch of wear to extremities; mildest rubbing to wrapper covers; former owner's name at front end paper; pages have tanned somewhat with age; crease along the front hinge; binding square and secure; text clean. Remains close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 175pp. Preface by Charles Bukowski. First Edition UK [1985]; unstated. Trade Paperback. Ask the Dust is a virtuoso performance by an influential master of the twentieth-century American novel. It is the story of Arturo Bandini, a young writer in 1930s Los Angeles who falls hard for the elusive, mocking, unstable Camilla Lopez, a Mexican waitress. Struggling to survive, he perseveres until, at last, his first novel is published. But the bright light of success is extinguished when Camilla has a nervous breakdown and disappears . . . and Bandini forever rejects the writer's life he fought so hard to attain.
