  • Details
    The Gypsy’s Curse, First Edition
    Harry Crews
    Alfred A. Knopf: New York, 1974

    Stated first edition. Yellow cloth with gilt titles; wrapped in original dust jacket. Near Fine/Very Good. Previous owner’s name written on front free endpaper, a square, clean copy, pages are unmarked and binding tight; dust jacket shows light wear and is now protected in an archival mylar cover.

    Considered a grandfather of ‘Grit Lit’ and southern gothic writing, Harry Crews is remembered for crafting works with “freaks” at the center, although he would never describe them this way. From the dust jacket: “The novels of Harry Crews have consistently been praised for their mysterious and convincing grasp of the recognizably human feelings that lodge amidst the demonic and strange, in what The New York Times Book Review has called a “Heironymus Bosch Landscape”’.
