FROM A LIMESTONE LEDGE
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1980. xv,228pp. Illustrations by Glenn Wolff. First edition. SIGNED on the front fly by the author and additionally inscribed to a prominent Dallas author on the half-title page. Fine copy. The unclipped dust jacket shows slight toning to the spine and minor edgewear, else fine. John Graves: “This collection is made up entirely of articles and essays written during the late 1970’s for ‘Texas Monthly’ and published mainly in a column called ‘Country Notes.’ Most are part of a continuing effort to rationalize my rural existence.” Considered by some to be a sequel of Graves’ Hard Scrabble, it is a collection of finely crafted stories by this important Texas writer.
