40 1090 Gordon, Mary Men And Angels
Hardcover Random House: New York; 1985; First US Edition Very Good in Very Good dust wrapper  
239 pages; Remainder mark on bottom, slightly soiled edge, slightly cocked; price cut dust wrapper chipped at spine tail and lightly rubbed. ; Some consider this Gordon's best book. There is always a spiritual or religous overtone somewhere in Gordon's work, and the counterpoint with the slightly off-balance "au pair" Laura is ominous. Laura's presence in the novel gives it almost a thriller quality Gordon has never attempted. Think Rebecca DeMornay in the film, "Hand that Rocks the Cradle, " but lower key! Think Mother Love, but not Stella Dallas!

43 1099 Grimes, Martha End Of The Pier
Hardcover Knopf: New York; 1992; First US Edition Very Good in Very Good+ dust wrapper  
230 pages; Slightly cocked; dust wrapper has creased inside flaps; A complete departure for Grimes, who sets this novel in a small town somewhere in upstate New York, and peoples it with characters totally removed from Richard Jury and his ilk. In fact, the psycho-serial killer Sheriff Sam is investigating is only secondary to the novel. Grimes concentrates on the intense and shifting relationship between Maud and her son Chad, 20. Atmospheric and suspensful - the scenes at the eponymous end of the pier and Chad's visit to the small town department store are tours de force!

46 7081 HELPRIN, Mark In Sunlight and in Shadow
Hardcover Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: NY; 2012; First US Edition; First Printing 705 pages Very Good in Near Fine dust wrapper 
Spine ends lightly bumped, green ink line on bottom edge, remnant of a sticker blacked out with ink on front free endpaper. Unclipped dust wrapper very lightly edgeworn.; 'Can love and honor conquer all? Mark Helprin’s enchanting and sweeping novel springs from this deceptively simple question, and from the sight of a beautiful young woman, dressed in white, on the Staten Island Ferry, at the beginning of summer, 1946.

Postwar New York glows with energy. Harry Copeland, an elite paratrooper who fought behind enemy lines in Europe, has returned home to run the family business. Yet his life is upended by a single encounter with the young singer and heiress Catherine Thomas Hale, as they each fall for the other in an instant.

Harry and Catherine pursue one another in a romance played out in Broadway theaters, Long Island mansions, the offices of financiers, and the haunts of gangsters. Catherine’s choice of Harry over her longtime fiancé endangers Harry’s livelihood and eventually threatens his life. In the end, it is Harry’s extraordinary wartime experience that gives him the character and means to fight for Catherine, and risk everything.'; While set in 1946 New York this book does spend a significant amount of time in World War II Europe. Recommended for those that can handle the WWII details and some gang violence and for those that enjoyed Helprin's "A Winters Tale". Image is actual copy on offer.

Dust wrapper edgeworn and rubbed with a few chips and closed tears and light soil to white areas.; A humorous fictionalized memoir of five girls growing up, in the 1950's, in a small town in Canada near the US border. Author's note: "If anyone should ask, there is a town on the Canadian side of the Detroit River, much like this, but not exactly. The people who lived there resembled the characters in this book, but not entirely, and in so far as I know, none of them bore the names used here. But are the stories true? Well, yes-and no."
