Young Hearts Crying
(NY), Delacorte, (1984). The uncorrected proof copy of his next-to-last novel. Uncommon, especially compared to the proof of his preceding novel, Liars in Love. Tiny numbers in the upper corner of about a half dozen pages throughout the book seem to be marking some kind of countdown (+:22, -2:00, -1:50, -1:30, -1:20, -1:00). The number 10 is written on the spine crown; handling apparent to covers, otherwise a near fine copy in wrappers. [#032840] $75
