Mirror for Magistrates
London: Anthony Blond, 1958. Fine/Near Fine. First edition. Octavo. 172 pp. Fine in near fine dustwrapper. Richard Gibson was awarded the John Hay Whitney Fellowship in 1951 to pursue writing this novel. He was drafted in the army, served in Europe and by the late 1950s had become a member of the group of African-American expatriates centered in Paris around Richard Wright and James Baldwin. In a sequence of events in 1957-58 that became known as the "Gibson Affair," the CIA allegedly employed or otherwise utilized Gibson to promote pro-French sympathies, specifically regarding Algeria's fight for independence. This was dramatized by Richard Wright in his unfinished last novel, Island of Hallucination (see Michel Fabre's The Unfinished Quest of Richard Wright).
