The Work of an Ancient Hand.

New York: Harcourt, Brace & Co.. Very Good in Good dust jacket. 1960. First Edition. Hardcover. Bright orange cloth with stamped decoration. 313 pages. Worn ends and dust soil, otherwise a clean, straight, sharp copy. The dust jacket is heavily edgeworn with celophane tape on the inside for short tear repair. Now in a removable clear cover. Curtis Arthur Harnack (1927 – 2013) was an American writer. "The stories here stretch from the 1920s through the depths of the Depression when farms were foreclosed and families evicted, and on into the prosperous post-war years. The scope is ambitious, the themes mythical and biblical in tone, and Harnack pulls it all off in fine style. One can guess the author may have been influenced by earlier literary classics like WINESBURG, OHIO or SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY, but what you are reading in the end is pure Harnack. I was caught up in these stories and characters from beginning to end. Harnack is an author who has studied his craft and learned his lessons well. Superb stuff." - Tim Bazzett, author of the REED CITY BOY trilogy. (Mr. Bazzett's full review may be found on Amazon) .
