A Confederate General from Big Sur
NY, Grove Press, (1964). His first novel, after several small press poetry collections. Brautigan's writings influenced an entire generation and, although he fell out of literary favor for a time -- culminating in his suicide in 1984 -- he has come to be seen as an American original whose whimsy, sensitivity and humor uniquely epitomized his time. A bit of staining to the joints and top edge; near fine in a very good, spine and edge-darkened jacket with a small corner chip at the crown. [#035635] $300
