BUTLER, Robert Olen
Countrymen of Bones
NY, Horizon, (1983). His third novel, set in New Mexico during the development of the atomic bomb. A literary novel, with the pace and some of the plot elements of a thriller. Anatole Broyard, reviewing it in The New York Times, called it a "brilliant novel of ideas...[that is] never pretentious or didactic... The characters embody and enact -- even dance -- the author's ideas." Signed by the author. Fine in a very near fine dust jacket with a hint of rubbing near the crown. [#912990] $100
