About this Item

149 p. Tan cloth and black paper over boards. Spine titles. Top page block: red. Includes publisher's comment card. Fiction: The lead character, Edmond Du Chaillu, was born with a human body and the head of a spaniel. He arrived after 20 years of sterility, and his condition was a severe blow to his parents. Author Jean Dutord insisted with this work, called satire by reviewers, he was just telling a story, not trying to prove anything. Edmond is followed by the reader through school, military service, wild oats, job-hunting, work at a bank, first love, a career, and a fortune on the stock exchange. Very good in very good dust jacket. Light foxing, reverse jacket, right page block, and end papers. Light jacket soiling. Bookseller Inventory # Alibris.F3440007613

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
