2 Banks, Russell Affliction
NY Harper & Row 1989 First Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine Signed by Author
This copy has been SIGNED by Russell Banks on the title page. As Elmore Leonard says: "It begins, 'This is the story of my brother's strange criminal behavior.' and will not let go of you, I swear, until you turn the last page." The story of Wade Whitehouse, like its subject, male violence, is a commonplace one. Because he is a part-time policeman his sudden rampage might make its way onto the back page of a newspaper: a brief, cryptic flare of sensationalism against the gray background of a New Hampshire mill town. But in Russell Banks's hamds Wade Whitehouse becomes as memorable and meaningful as Faulkner's Joe Christmas.

This copy of "Lost Memory of Skin" has been SIGNED by Russell Banks on the half-title page! Title page is dark so half-title page signature is preferred.

The perfect convergence of writer and subject, "Lost Memory of Skin" probes the zeitgeist of a troubled society where zero tolerance has erased any hope of subtlety and compassion - a society where isolating the offender has perhaps created a new kind of victim.
