First edition of this novel by author of Wild at Heart. Octavo, original boards. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, “For Brett a few new memories for you- Barry Gifford.” Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Jess Morphew.

Reminiscent of Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn and Ernest Hemingway's Nick Adams stories, Memories from a Sinking Ship travels the landscape of a turbulent world seen through a boy’s steady gaze. Like Twain’s Mississippi River and Hemingway’s Big Two-Hearted, Gifford’s Chicago, New Orleans, and the highways and byways between offer us mesmerizing lives lost in the kaleidoscope of postwar America, in particular those of Roy’s adrift and disappointed mother and his hoodlum father.
