10 Moody, Rick DEMONOLOGY - [signed]
Boston Little, Brown 2001 First Edition Hardcover; First Printing F/F Signed by Author
Fine in Fine jacket.; Signed first edition. ; Description: 306 p. ; 22 cm. Contents: The mansion on the hill -- On the carousel -- The double zero -- Forecast from the retail desk -- Hawaiian night -- Drawer -- Pan's fair throng -- The carnival tradition -- Wilkie Fahnstock: the boxed set -- Boys -- Ineluctable modality of the vaginal -- Surplus value books, catalogue #13 -- Demonology. Responsibility:by Rick Moody. Abstract:These stories are abundant proof of Rick Moody's grace as a stylist and a shaper of interior lives. He writes with equal force about the blithe energies of youth ("Boys") and the rueful onset of middle age ("Hawaiian Night"), about midwestern optimists ("Double Zero") and West Coast strategists ("Baggage Carousel"), about visionary exhilaration ("Forecast from the Retail Desk") and delusional catharsis ("Surplus Value Books: Catalog Number 13"). The astounding title story, which has already been reprinted in four different anthologies, is a masterpiece of remembrance and thwarted love.Full of deep feeling and stunningly beautiful language, the stories in Demonology offer the richest pleasures that fiction can afford.; Signed by Author
