About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Day of the Locust by West, Nathanael.

Description:

The Day of the Locust, by Nathanael West, with an introduction by film critic David Thomson, and twenty photographs by Lucy Gray. Thomson's introduction sheds new light on this classic Hollywood novel, while the photographs are done in the manner of movie stills, and are printed with a metallic ink background that creates the mood of night scenes. About this edition, Greil Marcus said, "No one remembers the 1975 film of The Day of the Locust because the casting was terrible. Images from the film never entered the folklore of the nation as the book has, but Lucy Gray’s images—conceived as stills for the movie that remains to be made—very well may. Her pictures—with buildings such as Homer Simpson’s rotting cottage or the San Bernadino Arms communicating as fully as faces or bodies—are at once familiar and revelatory. That’s exactly who Faye Greener is, you might say, even if you’ve never pictured her before—and no wonder Tod Hackett never did a thing for her. You don’t have to page back and forth between the text and the photographs; the pictures glow in the reader’s mind from first sight." The book format is 9-3/4 by 7 inches, with 180 numbered pages plus twenty unnumbered pages for the photographs. The text and photograph captions were printed by letterpress. The paper is Italian mouldmade Magnani Velata. The photographs were printed in duotone over a metallic silver ground, overlaid with varnish. The binding is full cloth, in a chartreuse color, over boards with titling and the image of a rising cloud of locusts on the cover. The book is presented in a cloth and paper covered slipcase. All copies are signed by the photographer. The edition is limited to four hundred numbered copies for sale. Bookseller Inventory #
