1 Calisher, Hortense False Entry
Boston Little Brown & Co 1961 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Good+ dust jacket 

Corners very slightly bumped. DJ has two 1" tears and small tears/chipping at spine ends. A clean and bright copy.

"The chronicle of one man - so intimately and subtly unfolded that the reader becomes this man and sees with his acute consciousness a whole panorama of 20th-century life. . . Burdened with the retentive memory of the confidant, the hero has from boyhood made false entry into other people's present lives, by means of his knowledge of their past. At the height of a life publicly complete, inwardly double, his outer dangers fuse with the furies within, and the reader travels with him on a fascinating, unsparing journey through his past and present, to reclaim both. Ranging from England to the South of the US to New York City, seen through an extraordinary inner landscape, its characters appear with the terrifying intimacy of truth."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
Price: 19.50 USD

2 Calisher, Hortense Herself: An Autobiographical Work
New York Arbor House 1972 0877950423 / 9780877950424 First Edition Cloth Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Illustrated by Bacon, Paul (cover)

Spine slightly slanted, one corner slightly bumped. DJ has 1/4"tear at back flap, very minor shelfwear. A clean attractive copy.

"This is Hortense Calisher's account of her life-in-progress as a woman and a writer --- and the inseparability of the two in her mind and heart. In this intimate "rediscovery" of herself and those moments of truth that have formed her, Miss Calisher includes her private writings and journals, and begins with her appraisal of the '30s (which she designates the Era of The Big Apple), treats of ego art, gives her views of sex and politics, of writers and writing in an altogether fresh and original way. Herself is a book that in a sense reconstructs by its very shape the life and thought and times it speaks of, because we come to learn of them as she did, and with her remembered feelings and notions --- in the heightened perspective of then and now. Herself is indeed the story of a remarkable woman's life and work in progress, stopping at the end of the past. The future is for later."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
