1929: A novel of the Jazz Age

Counterpoint, 2003. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Association copy, inscribed to novelist Jim Harrison, author of *Legends of the Fall*, on the front free endpaper in blue calligraphic script: "Jim, Many thanks, Jimmie, for your generous help on this. I raise a symbolic glass of Calva in your direction. Fred. Santa Fe, 5/03." Turner and Harrison were longtime friends, and Harrison's blurb graces the back of the jacket: "Frederick Turner's 1929 would be one of the more remarkable novels published in any year of our time. I found the book a stunning performance of grand dimension. The writing is beautifully controlled and elegant, giving ever greater tension to the often lurid and violent contents. Historically, I can think of no finer portrait of an American artist and his times." The other blurbs are by Paul Winter, Peter Matthiessen, and W.S. Merwin. A historical novel about real-life Jazz sensation Bix Beiderbecke, a cornetist, and his famous milieu. Turner's first novel. He is also known for his nonfiction about place, and is the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship among other honors. A near fine book on account of a bump to rear lower corner; in a near fine jacket with rubbing to rear. From the library of Jim Harrison in Livingston, Montana. // Wood (+) River (=) Books specializes in ecology, natural history, nature writing, the environment, and environmental literature, with a special passion for association copies and notable inscriptions.
