Love in the Days of Rage

New York, NY: E.P. Dutton, 1988. First Edition. Hardcover. "Love in the Days of Rage is a work of Lyricism and commitment, painting and politics, passion and intellect- a prescient book to set beside the great expatriate novels of earlier generations. It was 1968, and the streets of Paris were alive with the graffiti of revolution..." (from front flap) A mid-late career work of recent-historical fiction by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, the iconic figure of the Beat Generation/San Francisco Renaissance. As poet, prose writer, artist, publisher, bookseller & activist, Ferlinghetti was at the forefront of American literature & culture for seven decades, with his recent passing on February 22, 2021 still fresh in the mind of the Beat-&-Beyond community. This novel of revolutionary passion & romance—set in the "Days of Rage" phenomenon in Paris that came close to toppling the established order during the height of the 1960s global counterculture—is an acclaimed, exemplary work in the vast Ferlinghetti oeuvre. Ruefully overlooked by modern-day cultural commentators, the events of May ’68 bear such great relevance to the social justice hard-liners of today that it does every one of us well to learn about it. Hardcover in unclipped dust jacket, first (American) edition as stated on copyright page, first printing as indicated by number sequence thereon. [ISBN: 0-525-24681-9]. Book and dust-jacket in very fine condition, spotlessly unread and virtually as new. Very Fine. [Item #4332]
