About this Item

Fine condition 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover in Fine condition dust jacket inscribed and SIGNED by the author on the first free endpage. Inscription reads: "Sept. 16, 1992 To my dear friend Dan, a great and noble wordsmith whose art has enthralled millions of which I am one, as ever affectionately, Brian". Dan is Daniel Taradash, Academy Award-winning screenwriter and former president of the Motion Picture Academy, from whose Beverly Hills estate we purchased the book. "This tale exploring the menage a trois of derangement, genius, and enmity in high places will delight--even mesmerize--its reader. It is as strange and persuasive a period piece as I've ever read." -- James Merrill. This lovely 1st printing doesn't have any significant flaws, nor does its dust jacket. We will pack it in bubble-wrap to protect its corners and ship it in a sturdy box to ensure safe delivery. Bookseller Inventory # ABH160
