        Owls Do Cry

      Christchurch, New Zealand: Pegasus, 1958. Second. Cloth. Good/Good. Janet Frame's first novel, Owls Do Cry draws on many details of her own life. Her childhood was shadowed by poverty, sickness, and accidental death, and shaped by the power of the spoken and written word. At twenty-one, she was institutionalized in a mental hospital and later saved from a threatened lobotomy only by her achievement as a writer. Owls Do Cry explores the life of the Withers family in a New Zealand town "halfway between the South Pole and the equator." Poverty and a reputation for strangeness exclude the Withers from the hollow conventions and artifacts of suburban life. They do not possess revolving clotheslines, walkie talkie dolls or uncomfortable chairs, yet the children's lives are rich in "wonder currency:" rhymes and rituals, play and dreams. Twenty years later, this currency is subsumed for each of them into vivid, haunted inner lives. Owls Do Cry lyrically evokes "the private and lonely night, with a room of its own but no window" within which the characters are caught. The parents are worn down by worry and love; the children grow into baffled, damaged adults. Each has taken hold of "the wrong magic and the wrong fairy tale." The special quality of this novel lies in its poetic, hallucinatory, perceptive voice, imbued with the surreal vision of childhood and madness. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

        Amours *

      M.Lubineau, Paris 6.10.1958. - En feuilles 30 x 21, couverture imprimée rempliée, double emboîtage titré au dos de la chemise. Tampon sur garde et dos de l'étui un peu maculé. L'un des 475 exemplaires numérotés sur Vélin pur fil de Rives. Sagement sensuel pour ce qui est des images, certainement plus corsé au niveau des textes. Le futur acquéreur nous le dira peut-être, encore un ouvrage que nous n'aurons sans doute pas le loisir de lire - si vous aimez ça, ne faites pas ce métier !
