Wrinkles - Charles Simmons

Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1979, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good - in Poor DJ. DJ creased inside front cover with 4cm tear in verso. Some wear at edges

Wrinkles is concrete, richly detailed, precise in its evocation of the past, the vivid present, an imagined future. We see what the child saw when he looked in the mirror, what the boy saw later, what the man sees now, and what someday the old man will see. How the child loved; how the man loves; how the old man will love. Fought; fights; will fights. The boy's friends: where they are now; where they will be.This is a book on changes. But along the way it also encompasses the triumphs and the joys of the human comedy.Inscription inside fep purports to be by the author reading "For Steve Gibbas with regards, Charles Simmons" but writing quality questionable.
