The Great Santini

by CONROY, Pat

Condition: Fine/Near Fine

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1976. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. First edition. Fine in near fine dustwrapper with some foxing confined mostly to the inside of the jacket and a small, internally repaired tear on the front panel. Inscribed by Conroy to the daughter of poet James Dickey, who was one of Conroy's major early influences, and with whom he studied: "To Patsy, Thanks for the kindness, your encouragement, your enthusiasm, your letters, and your friendship. Pat Conroy. May 3, 1980." The author's splendid first novel, basis for the excellent film with Robert Duvall in the title role. Increasingly scarce first edition with a very nice South Carolina-association.
