The Great Leader
NY, Grove Press, (2011). The advance reading copy of Harrison's take on the detective story. Inscribed by Harrison to Philip Caputo and his wife, Leslie: "To my friends, Phil & Leslie on their road trip to where? Jim." In the year this book was published, the Caputos took a 16,000 mile road trip with truck and trailer from Key West, Florida, to Deadhorse, Alaska, resulting in Caputo's book The Longest Road: Overland in Search of America. Near fine in pictorial wrappers (and marked as an "uncorrected proof" by the publisher). An uncommon issue, and with a fine association between these two men, who were colleagues, neighbors, and friends. [#033935] $500
