Very good in good dust jacket. 215 p. Audience: General/trade. A novel. From the dust jacket: "Set in the last lovely years of Europe before World War II, Samuel M. Steward's new novel tells the story of Sir Arthur Lyly, the last and most notorious protege of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. Nostalgic yet psychologically acute, Steward chronicles the strange interconnection between Sir Arthur's rising career as a painter and his increasingly dangerous and desperate sexual passions--for a Chicago gangster, a disturbed British sailor, a young Parisian tough and a Spanish peasant boy."
215p., previous owner name, address and purchase note on front free endpaper otherwise good first edition in boards and unclipped slightly shelf worn dj. Steward uses his literary persona--rather than the Phil Sparrow/Phil Andros one--to novelize the life of Sir Arthur Lyly, like Steward, a friend and protegé of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas.
