The Red Truck by Rudy Wilson [FIRST EDITION / FIRST PRINTING]

  • $19.00


FIRST EDITION / FIRST PRINTING [1987] ALFRED A. KNOPF

Book is Excellent.  Like New with mild shelf wear.  Flyleaf page appears to be torn out, though it is hardly noticeable [see last photo.] 


A cult favorite.  Published alongside his short story collection, Sonja's Blue, these books are interesting evidence in the controversy over the influence of former Knopf editor Gordon Lish (who edited The Red Truck but not the short stories.) Lish edited Wilson as he edited Raymond Carver, with dazzling results that may be compared to the author's original and unedited writing in Sonja's Blue.
