A Confederate General from Big Sur
NY, Grove Press, (1964). A review copy of his first novel. Brautigan's writings influenced an entire generation and, although he fell out of literary favor for a time -- culminating in his suicide in 1984 -- there was a resurgence of interest in his writings as he came to be seen as an American original whose whimsy, sensitivity and humor epitomized his time. Small spot to foredge, small tap to crown, and mild fading to board edges; still near fine in a near fine, spine-tanned dust jacket with shallow chipping to the crown. Uncommon as an advance copy.
