Cullowhee, NC: Amazon/Kindle for New Native Press, 2015. First Edition. Softcover. Signed by Thomas Rain Crowe. "Based on scenes and scenarios from Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet and the real history of the Shaker community in Pleasant Hill, Kentucky, The Watcher focuses on the paradoxical world of the Shakers in the fictional enclave of Pleasant Grove in the mid-1800s during the antebellum Protestant revival-- up to and including the Civil War years-- during what is historically referred to as the Era of Manifestation (referring to the manifestation of spirits)." (from back cover) Subtitled "a novel in three acts," this imaginative work merges the doomed love of Shakespeare's famous fictional protagonists with the actual, equally doomed celibate religious Shaker community of 19th century America. Author Thomas Rain Crowe is a prolific writer & publisher who was at the center of the Baby Beat Generation/ Second San Francisco Renaissance during the 1970s (see our book, Starting from San Francisco, item No. 3071, Deluxe Edition No. 3075). On the title page, Crowe has hand-written his signature in bold blue ink. Softcover original, first edition, first printing as stated on copyright page. A later work that adds to the many cultures, interests & topics that Crowe has deeply delved into during his long & most distinguished career; a key collectible in his canon. In very fine condition with only a bit of rubbing to front, back covers & spine; a few tiny bumps, creases at edges & corners of same. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps, faint creases at upper corners of some page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #3623]
