Cover photograph by Robert Campbell, 'Salt Pond Aerial.' Cover design by Ann Walston. FROM THE PUBLISHER - '[T]he poems in this debut. .open up to show startling verbal skills, intellectual depths, and sensory complications. Marital love in the present (Kiesselbach has a particular talent for love poems), what looks like abuse in the past, the cycle of green growing things, the cold of the north, and the warmth of the animal world all inform these investigations of confession and its discontents, of commitments given and withheld, sometimes through stark life story but more often, in a wonderful involution, through symbols contemplated at short remove.' --Publishers Weekly. inventory #40591 ISBN: 9780822962175.

A Murky Business

Balzac, Honore de

Baltimore. 1972. Penguin Books. 1st Penguin Classic Paperback Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. ISBN:0140442715. Translated from the French & With An Introduction by Herbert J. Hunt. 223 pages. paperback. The cover, designed by Germano Facetti, shows a detail from æThe departure of the Recruits in 1807 in front of la Porte St DenisÆ by Louis-Leopold Boilly, in the Musee Carnavalet, Paris. FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘Rulers must never be hedged round by the principles governing private morality’, wrote Balzac, and the political intrigue which occupies much of A MURKY BUSINESS is characterized by amoral ruthlessness. Set earlier than most of Balzac’s ‘Human Comedy’, the novel covers the years 1803-6, when Napoleon was making himself first Consul and then Emperor. The inclusion of Napoleon himself, as well as figures like Talleyrand and Fouche, makes this a historical novel. But it is also an early example of the detective story, in which the sinister, implacable police agent, Corentin, stalks his way towards vengeance on his aristocratic enemies. inventory #28910 ISBN: 0140442715.

Erewhon

Butler, Samuel

New York. 1961. January 1961. Signet/New American Library. 1st Signet Classic Paperback Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. Afterword By Kingsley Amis. 240 pages. paperback. CD41. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Disease is a crime punishable by imprisonment. Machines are considered dangerous; they have been destroyed and banished from the land. This is the way of the world in Erewhon, the imaginary country of simple, straightforward people that was created by Samuel Butler to serve as a foil for his attack on 'modern' life and thought. With wit and imagination the master satirist lashed out at evolution, medicine, education, justice. And paradoxically he presented several sides of each issue in a many - sided tale of adventure, ideas, escape. As Kingsley Amis points out in his Afterword to this Signet Classic, EREWHON is the first modern Utopian romance, a novel which directly anticipates Huxley's BRAVE NEW WORLD and Orwell's 1984. inventory #28941
