Gregor, David.
Variations on All the Perfect Things: Poems.
New in wraps. First Paperback edition. There was a hardcover signed limited of 100 copies. Signed by the author. From waiting in plastic chairs, to putting a brother in a clothes dryer, blue Parisian rooms, to the sun shining on a Spanish onion field, from the reflection of dying Emperor Tong to a man in a Los Angeles coffee shop worried about his soul--these poems are micro-stories illuminating the world without and the world within.

[Literary Memoir] Kazin, Alfred.
Writing Was Everything.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. For more than sixty years, Alfred Kazin has been one of the most eloquent witnesses to the literary life of the mind in America. Writing Was Everything is a summation of that life, a story of coming of age as a writer and critic that is also a vibrant cultural drama teeming with such characters as Hart Crane and Allen Ginsberg, Simone Weil and Flannery O’Connor, Hannah Arendt and Robert Lowell, Edmund Wilson and George Orwell. A blend of autobiography, history, and criticism that moves from New York in the 1930s to wartime England to the postwar South, Writing Was Everything emerges as a reaffirmation of literature in an age of deconstruction and critical dogma. In his encounters with books, Kazin shows us how great writing matters and how it involves us morally, socially, and personally on the deepest level.

[Poetry] Gluck, Louise.
Meadowlands: Poems.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Louise Gluck interweaves the dissolution of a contemporary marriage with the story of The Odyssey. Here is Penelope stubbornly weaving, elevating the act of waiting into an act of will; here, too, is a worldly Circe, a divided Odysseus, and a shrewd adolescent Telemachus. Through these classical figures, Meadowlands explores such timeless themes as the endless negotiation of family life, the cruelty that intimacy enables, and the frustrating trivia of the everyday. Gluck discovers in contemporary life the same quandary that lies at the heart of The Odyssey.

[Literary Criticism] Kazin, Alfred.
Bright Book of Life: American Novelists & Storytellers from Hemingway to Mailer.
A Near Fine copy in a Very Good plus, lightly edge-worn dust jacket with some rubbing & light soiling to front and rear panels. Alfred Kazin was an American writer and literary critic, many of whose writings depicted the immigrant experience in early twentieth century America. In this volume Kazin focuses his writing skills on the post-World War II novels of Mailer, Hemingway, Faulkner, Cheever, Bellow, Pynchon, Nabokov and others. The book is both a recapitulation of modernism and an evaluation of American writers who have achieved prominence since 1945. Modernism, a favorite topic of Kazin, is in his view a literary revolution marked by spontaneity and individuality but lacking in precisely the mass culture appeal necessary to its survival.

Dunn, Stephen.
Walking Light: Essays and Memoirs.
A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. In this collection, Dunn blends his thoughts about poetry with musings about his own early experience. Five essays explore the mysteries of composition, the problems and latitudes the poet faces, and the ways in which poetry confers value. The rest are essay-memoirs, touching upon such diverse subjects as basketball, gambling, storytelling, and silence. Though anecdotal, each memoir relates to the poetic mentality. How one walks in a dangerous neighborhood can be analogous to how one moves in a poem. And if one survives the silence of shyness, Dunn convinces us, it can be a storehouse of the unspoken. The title is derived from William Meredith's "Crossing Over." Meredith's speaker, on an ice floe in the middle of a river, says, "I love this fool's walk./ The thing we have to learn is how to walk light."

[Food History] Kurlansky, Mark.
Choice Cuts: A Savory Selection of Food Writing from Around the World and Throughout History.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Kurlansky (Cod; Salt), brings together a banquet of historical and modern writings on food. Divided into such chapters as "Memorable Meals" and "Eating Your Vegetables," the book covers the range of writings from food notables to general authors and historians. All the masters are covered, including the father of American food writing, James Beard, with his comments on radishes and hot chocolate; the doyenne of the British post-war kitchen, Elizabeth David, with her rail against the garlic press; as well as M.F.K. Fisher and her witty observations on "bachelor cooking." Kurlansky nicely balances specialist knowledge with just plain love of food, such as Hemingway's descriptive "Fish in the Seine," George Orwell's evocative "Paris Cooks and Waiters," and A.J. Liebling's writing on boxing and food, excerpted from Between Meals. Kurlansky does take readers out of the 20th century and back in history to the Roman Empire, with such writers as Pliny the Elder (writing about bees and honey), Plutarch and the witty poet Martial of Epigrams fame. Folded in between are such food masters as Escoffier, Brillat-Savin, Hannah Glass and Taillevent. Insightful comments and explanations by Kurlansky precede each piece; the resulting volume provides a wide range of tastes certain to tempt any literary palate. From Publisher's Weekly.

Man in Profile. Loseph Mitchell of the New Yorker.
A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine dust jacket. This biography reveals the untold story of the legendary New Yorker profile writer—author of Joe Gould’s Secret and Up in the Old Hotel—and unravels the mystery behind one of literary history’s greatest disappearing acts. From the 1930s to the 1960s, he was the voice of New York City. Readers of The New Yorker cherished his intimate sketches of the people who made the city tick—from Mohawk steelworkers to Staten Island oystermen, from homeless intellectual Joe Gould to Old John McSorley, founder of the city’s most famous saloon. Mitchell’s literary sensibility combined with a journalistic eye for detail produced a writing style that would inspire New Journalism luminaries such as Gay Talese, Tom Wolfe, and Joan Didion.
