New York: Harper & Row, 1978. First edition. Hardcover. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket.. This copy is inscribed by the author to Paul Bartel on the front endpaper. Bartel, 1938-2000, was an actor, writer and film director, best known for his film Eating Raoul (1982). A memoir/autobiography of growing up poor in Bacon County Georgia. Crews, 1935-2012, the son of a sharecropper, conjures up events that shaped him to become a natural born storyteller, for he grew up in a world where oral anecdote and remembered incident were an essential respite from hard work, hard drinking, fighting and just plain living. Tenderness and violence, comedy and tragedy move side by side throughout, and in his careful selection of character and event, he makes us feel what he himself once had, and has lost. 171pp. (Inventory #: 13448)
