A Conway Miscellany

Ninepin Press:
Easthampton: 2024
Four Books, Paperbacks, New,
Cover artwork by: Jean Valette-Penot

Four paperbacks. Sold as a set. The titles: A Forged Diary, Two Chapters in a Family Chronicle, Two Tales on Writing and Seventy-Nine Dreams. In these four wildly imaginative short books, award-winning author John Crowley employs a rattling button jar of styles to tell multifaceted stories: of a young artist’s adventures in 1960s New York, of family histories brought to light, of the beguiling mysteries of the dreaming mind. Featuring all the wonder, erudition, humor, and finely wrought prose for which Crowley is known, each volume stands on its own, yet all four are connected by thematic threads of love, loss, and chance, and of a life committed to literature and art. Taken together, they represent some of the author’s most intimate works to date. The books are printed in the US on 100% recycled paper. Their covers combine to reveal a painting by Jean Valette-Penot, Trompe-l'œil à la gravure de Sarrabat.” #72945
