Dalva
NY, Dutton, (1988). A novel told from the point of view of a pioneer woman and by consensus one of Harrison's best books, which effectively put the lie to the stereotype of him as a writer of testosterone-laced macho male fantasies and firmly established him as a writer of enormous sensitivity and vision. Inscribed by Harrison to Peter Matthiessen and his wife: "To Maria & Peter/ with my deepest admiration & regard/ from Jim [doodled self caricature]/ 4/88." Mild splaying to boards; near fine in a very good dust jacket. [#031694] SOLD
