(CRUMLEY, James). ANDERSON, Kent
Sympathy for the Devil
(n.p.), Gallimard, (1993). The first French edition of Anderson's first book: a powerful novel about the Special Forces in Vietnam, with whom the author served, which confronts the violence of the war head-on and explores an individual's capacity for tolerating and committing brutality that in any other context would be unthinkable and inhuman. With a preface for this edition by James Crumley that was later issued in the U.S. in pamphlet form, and in English, by Pride of Tacoma Press. Owner name; near fine in lightly rubbed black wrappers, with several inadvertently-turned page corners. [#035102] $50
