Love in the Days of Rage

New York, NY: E.P. Dutton, 1988. First Edition. Hardcover. “The more I make love, the more I want Revolution, the more I make Revolution, the more I want to make love." (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 at the age of 101 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. Offered here is the first American edition, hardcover in unclipped dust jacket, first edition as indicated on copyright page, first printing as indicated by number sequence thereon. Book in very fine condition with the slighted wear to edges, dust jacket also in very fine condition with slight wear to same. A very rare version of an essential Ferlinghetti collectible. Very Fine / Very Fine. [Item #5010]
