The Right Stuff is based on extensive research by Wolfe, who interviewed test pilots, the astronauts and their wives, among others. The story contrasts the "Mercury Seven" and their families with test pilots such as Chuck Yeager, who was considered by many contemporaries as the best of them all, but who was never selected as an astronaut.".

        The Executioner&#39;s Song [Signed]

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1979. Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1979. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, of this famed Norman Mailer work (some soiling to the page block&#39;s closed edges, light fading to the spine extremities), in a Fine dust jacket (quite slight edge wear), SIGNED BY NORMAN MAILER on the title page. Mailer was a pioneer and master of narrative nonfiction, of which this work is an excellent example. Based primarily on interviews with the friends and family of both murderer Gary Gilmore and his victims, the book details the events surrounding the murder itself as well as the subsequent trial, conviction, death sentence, and execution of Gary Gilmore, the first person to be executed for a crime in the United States following the 1976 reinstatement of the death penalty after a ten-year hiatus (which death sentence was carried out by firing squad at Gilmore&#39;s demand as he did not want to pursue the appeals process). The striking title may well have been taken from "The Lord High Executioner&#39;s Song" by Gilbert and Sullivan (part of "The Mikado"). The book won the 1980 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and was a finalist for the 1980 National Book Award for Fiction (won by William Styron&#39;s "Sophie&#39;s Choice"). Due to the large size of the book, copies in nice condition are surprisingly difficult to find, and signed copies are quite scarce. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY NORMAN MAILER. QUITE SCARCE.

        Exotic Birds

      N.p., 1979 N.p.: N.p., 1979. Red, orange, and black marker on drawing paper. Signed, "Van Vliet / 79." 10.5 x 13.75 inches. Archivally framed and matted. Near Fine. Gary Lucas was the principal guitar player, along with Jeff Moris Tepper, in Captain Beefheart's final configuration of the Magic Band, appearing prominently on Beefheart's last two recordings, "Doc at the Radar Station" (1980) and "Ice Cream for Crow" (1982). Lucas' solo guitar performances of "Flavor Bud Living" and "Evening Bell" on the respective recordings are singular in Beefheart's ouevre. Lucas managed and performed with Beefheart for five years, until Van Vliet retired to Trinidad, California to be a full-time painter in the mid-1980s. During their association, well before he gained notoriety as a painter, Beefheart spontaneously created drawings for Lucas, typically using colored markers, and typically reflecting the situation where the drawing was being made, either literally or on some abstract level. Accompanied by an explanatory letter of provenance from Lucas.

Le roman a été publié originellement en 1796. "Juliette, ou la Suite de Justine, parut en 1796. Des atrocités, des infamies devant lesquelles l'auteur avait reculé d'abord, lui paraissaient choses tout-à-fait louables ; les maximes de perversité, de scélérature, qu'il avait placées dans la bouche de ses personnages, lui semblaient si judicieuses qu'il regrettait de s'être montré si pusillanime. Pour réparer cette faute, il donna dans "Juliette" libre carrière à son imagination, que ne gênait plus aucun des misérables scrupules auxquels il avait obéi." "Oh ! ma bonne, ma chère bonne, me dit Olympe en baisant ma bouche avec ardeur, tu es bien putain, je t'adore ; voilà comme il faudrait que fussent toutes les femmes. Qu'elles sont imbéciles celles qui ne sacrifient pas tout à leurs plaisirs : Ah ! qu'elles sont stupides celles qui peuvent avoir d'autres dieux que Vénus . d'autres moeurs que celles de se prostituer sans cesse à tous les sexes, à tous les âges, à toutes les créatures vivantes. Oh ! Juliette, la plus puissante des lois de mon coeur est le putanisme ; je ne respire que pour répandre du foutre ; je ne connais ni d'autres besoins, ni d'autres plaisirs. (.)" Extrait de Juliette. SUPERBE EXEMPLAIRE A L'ETAT PROCHE DU NEUF DE CET IMMENSE VOLUME, ET PAR LE FORMAT, ET PAR LA PUISSANCE DE L'ILLUSTRATION SADIENNE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
