African Calliope
NY, Random House, (1979). A personal account of the author's travels to the Sudan. Nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award. Signed by the author. John Updike called Hoagland, who was his classmate at Harvard, "the best essayist of my generation." These essays and travel pieces combine the author's affinity for the natural world with an eye for detail that illuminates the very foreign, to him, societies and peoples he encounters. Very slight foxing to the top edge and mild cover splaying; near fine in a near fine dust jacket. [#032772] SOLD
