About the Author:

William Hjortsberg (b. 1941) is an acclaimed author of novels and screenplays. Born in New York City, Hjortsberg’s first success came with Alp (1969), an offbeat story of an Alpine skiing village, which Hjortsberg’s friend Thomas McGuane called, “quite possibly the finest comic novel written in America.” In the 1970s, Hjortsberg wrote two science fiction novels, Gray Matters (1971) and Symbiography (1973), as well as Toro! Toro! Toro! (1974), a comic jab at the macho world of bullfighting. His best-known work is Falling Angel (1978), a hard-boiled occult mystery. In 1987 the book was adapted into a film titled Angel Heart, which starred Robert De Niro and Mickey Rourke. Hjortsberg’s most recent work is Jubilee Hitchhiker (2012), a biography of Richard Brautigan, American writer and voice of 1960s counterculture.

Descrizione libro Hutchinson: London, 1979. Hardcover. First British edition (& 1st printing).. Supernatural novel filmed as ANGEL HEART (1987). A difficult title to find in fine condition, as the gold dustjacket (on both the US and UK editions) is notoriously prone to rubbing and soiling (though this copy shows much less of this than usual). Fine copy in a near fine dustjacket with one short (1cm) closed tear and creasing along the top spine edge. Codice libro della libreria 26985
