[First Book] Ford, Richard
A Piece of My Heart A Novel
New York::: Harper & Row,,, 1976.. 0060113626. A Near Fine copy with a slight indent to the foredge of the front board in Very Good plus price clipped dust jacket with a sticker abrasion on the front flap and slight edgewear. Ford's First Book. A Piece of My Heart is the story of two godless pilgrims who drive across the country in the service of a destructive passion. Sam Newell is seeking the missing piece of himself. When these men converge, on an uncharted island in the Mississippi, each discovers the thing he's looking for--amid a conflagration of violence that's as shocking as it is inevitable. This is quality writing in the highest American tradition of Faulkner, Hemingway and Steinbeck ... The dialogue is immaculate. The story-telling and plotting are confident and rich in texture. Above all, the sense of atmosphere, mood, time and place has a resonance that sings in the head and stimulates every sense..
