About this Item

Black cloth with gilt lettering. One of the first 10,000 printed, with one-of-a-kind original artwork to dust jacket. Signed by the author on half-title. Text is clean and white, no marks. Unclipped DJ shows mild soiling. "When did I know you were in the world? Distinct from all else and even so: of all the world? Did I know you first as a colorful thing, or had I heard you tumbling down a staircase and did I turn to see you fall, and then I would never forget you and I wanted to be near you and I touched you, my hands closed around you and I held you, our two skins were touching, a child and a lemon in their natural relation; I would have smelled you then, and probably would have put my tongue on your skin, you would have seemed big, like a melon to me now, maybe I even saw you then, saw you and then stopped seeing you, and now, years later." (from the jacket). Bookseller Inventory # C92014

About this title


Lemon is the story of the passionate love between a man and a citrus fruit, told with a fluid mixture of prose, drama, and about twenty pages of rhymed couplets. Krauser's inimitable style is at once richly convoluted and light as air. Krauser has also written the plays Wall Street Made Simple and Horrible Child.

From the Publisher:

A strange and beautiful book.
