Ship Fever and Other Stories, Barrett, Andrea
1 Barrett, Andrea Ship Fever and Other Stories
New York, NY W.W. Norton 1996 039303853X / 9780393038538 First Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine Signed by Author
This copy has been SIGNED by Andrea Barrett on the title page! Winner of the 1996 National Book Award for Fiction. The elegant short fictions gathered here, often set against the backdrop of the nineteenth century, take their impulse from the world of science. Interweaving historical and fictional characters, they move between past and present as they negotiate the complex territory of ambition, failure, achievement, and shattered dreams. Dustjacket praise by Howard Norman who states "In these wonderfully original stories, the great explorers of mind and geography seem to enter the room, and history feels more immediate than the present."

Spartina, Casey, John
2 Casey, John Spartina
London The Bodley Head 1989 0370313771 / 9780370313771 First U.K. Edition/First Printing Fine Fine Signed by Author
This copy has been SIGNED by John Casey. Winner of the National Book Award. "Spartina" tells the story of Dick Pierce - fisherman, husband, father, lover, angry man, and one of the most memorable (flawed) heroes in recent fiction - and the people who populate his world, the shores and waters of America's Rhode Island. With an unforgettable cast of characters and a breadth of narrative that has the beauty of a well-worn tapestry, Casey's writing recalls the great American novels of the early twentieth century while remaining utterly contemporary in its concerns: what we do with our lives and our work, why we do it, and for whom.

This is a beautiful copy of this National Book Award winner. It is about Dick Pierce - fisherman, father, lover, angry man, and one of the most memorable (flawed) heroes in recent fiction. It is about his two worlds: the fishing village of Galilee, Rhode Island, and its surrounding terrain of salt ponds, marshes, creeks, and hills, once (some of it) his family's land, now colonized by summer people, the careless rich swept in on a tide of money and fun; and, out there, away, the sea, where either you can work on other men's boats or, if you're shrewd enough, and tough enough, and salty enough, you can end up owning your own boat, and be master of your life.
