Pages from a Cold Island by Frederick Exley [A FAN'S NOTES #2]


Hardcover with dust jacket in very good condition.

Dust jacket has some discoloration / mild wear and tear to edges, but is overall in very nice shape and housed in a new archival quality jacket protector.

Book itself is excellent. Pristine cloth-bound boards; pages read like new.

The second volume in Frederick Exley's trilogy of autobiographical novels is in every way a worthy sequel to the much-acclaimed A Fan's NotesPages from a Cold Island begins with the death of Edmund Wilson, a devastating event that sends Exley on an obsessive personal odyssey from Alexandria Bay on the St. Lawrence River to a resort island off the coast of Florida to the Iowa Writer's Workshop. Our hero lurches from one outrageous encounter to another in a chronicle full of irrepressible energy and no-holds-barred confession.
