Here's Your Hat, What's Your Hurry
NY, Turtle Bay Books, (1993). The first book, a collection of stories, by the author of the The Giant's House and Bowlaway. In 1996, McCracken was selected as one of Granta's top 20 young American authors, as was Chris Offutt, and this copy is wonderfully inscribed by McCracken to Offutt on the dedication page: "And for Chris -- one of the few people I've spent the night with at the Sweet Rest Motel. With a great deal of affection and admiration and nostalgia -- love, Elizabeth/ And why are you making [Stewart] O'Nan be your message guy? Surely you know me well enough?" Fine in a fine dust jacket. [#033898] SOLD
