One To Count Cadence

by James Crumley

[New York]: Random House, [1969]. First edition. Author's first book. Signed on card and laid-in. Fine in dust jacket with tiny rub mark to top edge of front panel, minor wear to head of spine, and light wear to corners. In 1962, Sergeant Krummel arrives from the States to take over a crew of rebellious enlistees. One to Count Cadence is a mirror of a generation reared on violence, actors in the American wars of the 1960's who no longer believe in the myths of their country. It is least of all a war novel, but a book about friendship and survival. Author's scarce first book.
