Little Big Man
New York: Dial Press. 1964. First. First edition. Staining on the topedge thus very good in a modestly rubbed, very good or better dustwrapper with a shallow chip at the foot. Inscribed by the author to his parents: "To Mom & Dad with love on Thanksgiving Day 1964. Tom." The author's best known book, a picaresque western novel, the basis for the film of the same name. Both the book and the novel are tongue-in-cheek, panoramic views of the Old West. The protagonist and narrator of this novel, Jack Crabb, prefigured Forrest Gump by being on the spot for every important moment of his generation. Calder Willingham scripted the 1970 Arthur Penn film featuring Dustin Hoffman, Faye Dunaway, Martin Balsam, Richard Mulligan, and Oscar-nominated Chief Dan George. Berger was a fine, if now ridiculously underappreciated author. He wrote successfully in several genres, and indeed it is arguable that his success in so many genres (literary fiction, mysteries, epics, westerns, comedies, etc.) that might have contributed to the failure of critics to properly value him. The author's third and most famous book with a wonderful association. .
