2 McCarthy, Cormac The Stonemason, A Play in Five Acts
Hopewell, NJ Ecco 1995 0880013591 / 9780880013598 First Edition/First Printing Slipcase Fine No Jacket (As Issued) Signed by Author
This copy has been SIGNED by Cormac McCarthy on the publisher's tipped-in page. "This special edition of The Stonemason is limited to three hundred and fifty boxed copies. These books are NUMBERED and SIGNED by Cormac McCarthy." This being copy #88. In the preface to Vereen Bell's The Achievement of Cormac McCarthy (1988), it was noted that paperback editions of The Orchard Keeper (1982), Outer Dark (1984), Child of God (1984), and Blood Meridian (1986) were made available through the intelligent reclamation efforts of Daniel Halpern and the Ecco Press. After achieving "overnight" success (after 25 years of writing!) with the publication of All The Pretty Horses (1992), McCarthy returned to publish The Stonemason with Ecco. This is a play, written earlier in his career, set in Louisville, Kentucky in the 1970s which traces the relationships among four generations of a black family, and the keeping and tragic breaking of traditions from son to son.

A beautiful copy that has been SIGNED by Derek Walcott on the title page!

In "The Joker of Seville," Don Juan Tenorio, a Spanish prince, devotes himself to the pursuit of happiness through sexual conquest. "O Babylon," brings to life the Rastafarian sect in Jamaica, which grew during Marcus Garvey's exile to that country and has been popularized through the lyrics of reggae music.

New York, NY Farrar Straus & Giroux 1986 0374286183 / 9780374286187 First Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine Signed by Author
This volume has been SIGNED by Derek Walcott on the title page! The three plays in this collection form a triptych - the central play, a farce, is flanked by two dramas. Together they span the last four decades of Trinidad's social and political history, beginning, in "The Last Carnival," with the colonial life-style of a French Creole family faced with the emergence of the Black Power movement, and ending, in "A Branch of the Blue Nile," with the conflict among members of a small theatre company in contemporary Port-of-Spain. "Beef, No Chicken," the middle play, deals with the corruption of a small town in a hurry to catch up with the industrialization that a new highway will bring.
