New York, NY: Herodias, Inc., 2000. First edition thus. Softcover. First published in 1952 in an expurgated edition, this is the first Herodias Classics Edition, with the "unrepentant, unexpurgated" text of later printings of this underground novel, which "brought a French existentialist sensibility to (the) American malaise" as described by Steven Moore in his forward to this edition. Roughly concurrent with the Beat & other writings that took the lid off of complacent, conformist postwar America, Brossard "....stripped language of all its unnecessary literary trappings and reduced it to the flat, unemotional voice of a black-and-white documentary movie."(foreword, pg. v) This copy is signed by Moore on the title page, & is in very fine condition with only very slight wear to covers & creasing to lower bottom rear cover corner. Very Fine. [Item #1572]
