About this Item

**Inscribed by Author on title page. *First Printing Stated.* Hardcover in Fine condition, a hint of softening at head and foot of spine, otherwise mint. The dj is fine condition and is mylar covered and price intact. A collectible edition and the distinguished poet Galway Kinnel's only novel. from the dj flap -- "Set in contemporary Iran, ' Black Light' is the story of Jamshid, a quiet, simple man who one day, suddenly commits a murder. With this violent act his old life ends and a strange new existence begins. Fleeing across the desert, Jamshid embarks on a voyage of discovery which eventually takes him to Teheran's New City, a red light district walled off from the rest of the town. Here, in the black shadows and searing light of this teeming, vice ridden hole, Jasmid knows loathing, disease, and humiliation, and also affection, purity, and perhaps grace. ' Black Light' has the same dramatic intensity and stylistic magic that marks Mr. Kinnell's poetry.". Bookseller Inventory # 000884
