Description:
(Wichita): Watermark Press, 1990. First edition. About fine in fine jacket.. Signed first printing of O'Brien's stunning narrative of self-destruction. The author's first novel, and the only one published within his lifetime. Heavily autobiographical and drawing from O'Brien's own experience of screenwriting, alcoholism, and despair, the novel was adapted into a critically acclaimed 1995 film, released after O'Brien's death the year before. Though praised as spectacularly dark and unflinching, the adaptation substantially lightened the brutality of the novel, which was in turn a shade more romantic and less devastating than the real life behind it. 8.5'' x 5.5''. Original black cloth with silver spine lettering. In original unclipped ($19.50) dust jacket. Black endpapers. [6], 189 pages. Signed by O'Brien on title page. Gift inscription to half-title verso. Minor edgewear.

Description:
London: Burns & Oates, 1961. First printing. Very good plus in very good jacket.. First UK edition of this memoir by the Dominican nuns of Atlanta, originally published in the US as A MEMOIR OF MARY ANN, with O'Connor's introductory essay on the difficulties of writing and reading about good and pious children. First approached by the Dominicans of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Home to write the life story of Mary Ann Long as a novel, a proposal she emphatically rejected, O'Connor encouraged the nuns to write it themselves and sent the manuscript produced by Sister Evangelist on to her publisher with such faint praise as she could muster ("She don't write like Shakespeare but she does well enough for this.") Her introduction, more tactful than her private letters, dwells on Nathaniel Hawthorne and on charity, and persuaded Robert Giroux to publish it: "I read your preface at once; it's marvelous. Then I read the story, with a few misgivings which somehow are not important." 7'' x 4.75''. Original… Read More

Description:
New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1934. First edition. Very good plus.. First edition, scarce advance "presentation" copy, of O'Hara's acclaimed novel, in the original pictorial wrappers. "To me, O'Hara is the real Fitzgerald," Fran Lebowitz once said; underrated "because every single person who knew him hated him." Untrue; unkind; but fair enough. This is O'Hara's best known book, a sexually frank, Hemingway-endorsed narrative of Pennsylvania miseries, enacted in the person of Julian English, who magnifies his troubles with bitterness, alcohol, and finally carbon monoxide. The title of APPOINTMENT IN SAMARRA, taken from a parable retold by Maugham and used as the book's epigraph, serves to signal its inevitable end: fate and death come for us all, even unto the car dealerships of Gibbsville. A great American novel. 8'' x 5.5''. Original pictorial wrappers with flaps. Front fly leaf stamped with "TO BE PUBLISHED" and "PRICE," completed in pen with "Aug. 16" and "probably 2.50". 301, [1] pages.… Read More

Description:
New York: Random House, 1969. Near fine in near fine jacket.. Exceptionally clean first edition, first printing of O'Hara's novel about two women in love, set in the 1920s. A provocative work informed by the countercultural movements of the 1960s, about the lives of lesbian women in the early part of the 20th century. The contemporary NEW YORK TIMES review of it noted about O'Hara: "he surely has the most authentically dirty mind in American fiction. His in not the stale narcissism of a Roth or the gentle romanticism of a Hemingway, but the true dirtiness of the locker room and the barracks" (NYT, Richard Rhodes, 30 November 1969). 8.5'' x 5.5''. Original full brown cloth stamped in gilt and blue. In original unclipped ($5.95) purple jacket designed by Muriel Nasser. Orange topstain, green endpapers, fore-edge machine deckle.
