About this Item: Bruin Books, LLC, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. One of the best crime novels of the 50's, and a sublime example of American Noir, is BLACK WINGS HAS MY ANGEL by Elliott Chaze, whose earlier war novel, THE STAINLESS STEEL KIMONO, was much admired by Ernest Hemmingway. Chaze took the standard dime store crime novel and turned it into an edgy piece of literature. His use of complex sentences, long descriptive passages, and characters who continue to surprise us throughout the narrative prove that the American crime novel was capable of greater depths. The story follows the turbulent love affair of a pair of uprooted misfits, an ex-hooker and an ex-con, who are brought together by a mutual love of money. Adrift between the cracks of society, they form a bond that is less like love and more like fate. Left on their own they would have led lives of criminal mischief, misdemeanor and petty crime, but together, embarking on a dark journey across the American landscape, they create absolute mayhem.

About this Item: Charles Scribner's Sons New York, 1965. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. A good looking copy of the First Edition in a very good dust jacket. Publisher's orange cloth hardcover binding; top right corner with a small bump, otherwise just a bit of shelf wear & use apparent overall, but not abused. Titles in black on the spine still crisp & perfect. Text clean throughout, old price in pencil on the front pastedown, a tiny date stamp at the upper right corner of the front free endpaper. Nicely printed with a clear & legible type. Dust Jacket flaked at the corners & spine ends, a little flaking & minute nicks along the margins, only one tear, 1/2" at the base of the front panel; price still present on the front flap; overall looks quite decent in a fresh crystal clear Mylar DJ protector. 306 Pages; 5.5" by 8.5". From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia: "Chaze's works of fiction drew from many of his own experiences. They were praised by reviewers as being authentic and filled with local color, but sometimes criticized for sensationalism. The Stainless Steel Kimono, published in 1947, was Chaze's first novel, inspired by his time in Japan during the occupation. It is about the lives of seven American paratroopers while stationed in Japan. His most controversial novel, Tiger in the Honeysuckle (1965), was set within the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s in a fictionalized Hattiesburg. Exploring a white Southern newspaperman immersed in the changing times, it was harshly criticized by the New York Times and the Herald Tribune, but Granville Hicks of the Saturday Review wrote that it was "a sound piece of journalistic fiction, both informative and exciting." He said that readers would likely respond based on their own positions on "the race question, not by anything inherent in the novel." In an interview regarding his motivation for writing fiction, Chaze said: "Primarily I have a simple desire to shine my ass to show off a bit in print." During his career, Chaze had at least ten books published, including a collection of essays. His work was rediscovered in the 1980s, when Black Wings Has My Angel was republished One for the Money, and four more crime novels were published for the first time.". Seller Inventory # 002266
