Memphis Ribs, Duff, Gerald
13 Duff, Gerald Memphis Ribs
Bend, OR Salvo Press 1999 0966452011 / 9780966452013 First Edition Paperback As New 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" 
Although the book is new and unread, the covers are not quite as crisp as those of a paperback that has not been handled at all. An unconventional Southern mystery that is both amusing and brutally graphic, this novel spans Memphis society and culture. J.W. Ragsdale, Memphis homicide detective, seeks the murderer of a tourist and a local society giant during two major social events in Memphis: the International Barbecue Contest and the Cotton Carnival. Gerald Duff positions the arrogance of old money against the easy money of narcotics, masterfully capturing the intersection and dialect of both worlds. "Gerald Duff has an unerring ear for Memphis dialect." ¬Washington Post. "Memphis Ribs will stick to yours. It's got a detective who knows how to talk and what to do and an author who knows how to write. Between the two they don't miss a trick." ¬Roy Blount Jr. A native of the Texas Gulf Coast, Gerald Duff is a prize-winning poet and author. He spent six years in Memphis as dean at Rhodes College as well as having taught English and novel writing at Vanderbilt University and John Hopkins University, respectively. ; 216 pages

New, unread, unmarked. By the author of The Sevigne Letters. "Elegant and literate" -Los Angeles Times. Signed by author. The novella, Heist, and twelve other short stories make up this book. Using themes as diverse as love, eternal youth, middle-aged crises and sex, Eisner has written remarkable short stories that are literate and full of spark and wit. Heist tells the story of thirty something Ron Klein, an accountant who has become disillusioned with his life. From his office window, he watches the guards from an armored car carrying the money sacks out to the truck from the bank and in true Walter Mitty-like fashion daydreams of robbing them and spending the rest of his days in Paris. His thoughts soon become an obsession and, at a prison which he audits, he gets to know a convict who will help him make his dream come true. Along the way, Klein learns more about himself and what he truly wants as the robbery becomes a reality. Author Eisner's short stories reveal a myriad of characters rich in detail and nuances, such as the husband in the story, Arthur, who deals with his wife's latter stages of Alzheimer's, or the young girl in The Philosopher who romanticizes about her mentor/boss and discovers things aren't quite what they seem, or the 70ish man in The Fountain of Youth who discovers that sex with a young Chinese woman restores his vitality.; Signed by Author

The Great Gatsby, F, Scott Fitzgerald
16 F, Scott Fitzgerald The Great Gatsby
New York Bantam Books 1974 First MMP Edition; Eleventh Printing Mass Market Paperback As New 4 1/4" x 7" 
New, unread except for one crease to spine which I caused by opening the book to see the color stills section. The text is tanned. Tie-in with Paramount's major picture starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. THE GREAT GATSBY, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. This exemplary novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s. The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature. ; 192 pages

This time it starts with a bureau that he ordered from Scotland. It's supposed to be a fake, but when the truck driver is killed and the bureau turns out to be real, Lovejoy sets out for Scotland to find out what's going on. Soon he's mixed up with the McGunn clan and their beautiful leader, the wheelchair-bound Miss Elaine -- and he's pulling off the biggest scam of his career.; 240 pages
