Book Description New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 1951. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Beetle Leg, John Hawkes s second full-length novel, was first published by New Directions in 1951. After years of underground existence, this brilliant novel is emerging as a classic of visionary writing and still remains Hawkes s only work devoted solely to American life. As a surrealist Western (Newsweek), and a violent and poetic portrayal of a landscape of sexual apathy (Albert J. Guerard), The Beetle Leg is a rich flight into the special vein of comedy that Hawkes had begun to exploit a decade before the popular acceptance of black humor.
