KELLEY, William Melvin
A Different Drummer
NY, Anchor/Doubleday, 1990. The uncorrected proof copy of the reissue of his highly praised first book. Publication date written on front cover; fine in wrappers. The published book had a foreword by David Bradley, the African American author of South Street and The Chaneysville Incident, which is announced here but not yet included. This book, and its author, were the subjects of a recent article in The New Yorker, touting the novel as an undiscovered classic and the author as a unique voice in African American writing.
