Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE------HICKORY CURED by Douglas C. Jones. Colorful, nostalgic and unpretentious, ranging in theme and mood from tough to tender, and told with the artful artlessness of the born raconteur, these 10 linked tales, supposedly from the lips of one Shanks Caulder, evoke the full flavor of life in the imaginary Arkansas town of Weedy Rough back in the '30s. The accent is on character. There's feisty old Hanby Crumb, who boasts of having been the favorite of Pancho Villa; lawman Leo Sparks, who conducts an endless feud with the town's most detested family; the bumbling Slaven Budd whose one talent is that he can talk dog''; the wild and tragic Audie Renkin who wins from five men at a poker game more money than they are prepared to lose. Other stories feature life on a prison farm, the strange sport of fox racing, a fastball that goes out of control, a trombonist who drinks too much and, in a manner both quaint and slightly sinister, some kids who dress up in the garb of the Ku Klux Klan. Jones has supplied his own expressive drawings to go with this most engaging collection. You are bidding on the stated Holt First Edition from 1987. Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in positively minty-mint condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.--and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (they still crackle) (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. . Paypal is an acceptable alternative. I will ship internationally for additional charges. So bid soon for a fascinating read and impossible-to-find SHORT STORY COLLECTIBLE by a master of the form.
