Washington, DC, Counterpoint, (1997). The first printing of the reissue of his first novel, about a Korean War fighter pilot who is trying to "chalk up enough kills [against Soviet aircraft] to become an ace." Inscribed by the author to Peter [Matthiessen] in the year of publication: in part, "...your backhand is invincible, your forehand is a killer, you have all the qualities of an ace -- ..." Signed, "[heart] Jim." Matthiessen provides a blurb for the dust jacket. Fine in a fine dust jacket. [#032521] SOLD
