1 Edgerton, Clyde Killer Diller [signed]
Chapel Hill, NC Algonquin Books 1991 094557553X / 9780945575535 First Edition Hardcover Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Illustrated by Bacon, Paul (cover)
Signed by Author

Jacket in new Brodart, a little edge wear and rubbing. Inscribed and signed by author on title page.

"Clyde Edgerton is back! With another great story, a whole new cast of character, and the return of two old favorites. Remember Wesley from 'Walking Across Egypt' - the orphan boy who'd got in trouble for 'borrowing' cars? And Mattie, who took him in, got his teeth fixed, and brought him to church with her. Well, Wesley's twenty-four years old now, and Mattie's slowed down so much that he looks after her almost as much as she looks after him. A lot of the churching of hers took, though, and he wouldn't be in Ted and Ned's halfway house except somebody forgot and left their keys in the ignition of a white Continental.
"The Lord only knows where Wesley's headed from here. He's a good bricklayer, so good they put him in Project Promise so he can teach it to a boy from Special Ed. Then there's his band, the Noble Defenders of the Word. Wesley's even tried his hand at some preaching. Can you believe it? Plus he's got his eye on a girl over there at the Nutrition House. Like that old blues song says, 'He's a Killer Diller from the South.'"; 7" - 9" Tall; Signed by Author

"Welcome to the Rosehaven Convalescence Center in beautiful Listre, NC. Here's Mrs. Lil Olive out on the front porch, talking and rocking along with the regulars. Lil's comfortable here (recuperating from a recent bad fall), but she is eager to get back to her own apartment. And since her driver's license doesn't expire until her 97th birthday, she's also eager to get back behind the wheel of her sporty '89 Olds. . . She wants some adventure. And before long, tranquil Rosehaven is turned upside down. Lil and the girls steal a car and hit the highway." And that's only some of what's bubbling up at Rosehaven.; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

"The Copeland family of Listre, North Carolina, goes back a long way. A Copeland bride planted wisteria by her back porch 20 years before the Civil War. Now her vine has just about taken over the woods around the family graveyard. Think what that wisteria vine has seen, and what it could tell if it could talk!
"When the family gathers every May to clean up the graveyard and clip the vine back away from the tombstones, the old people talk to keep the path to the past open. They tell all the best stories again and they make sure the new brides understand how everybody (dead and alive) is kin and who is named for whom.
"Meredith's father, Albert Copeland, keeps a sort of written family record. He keeps it in some notebooks he bought to log the flights of his home-built floatplane, a project Albert first undertook back in 1956. "; 7" - 9" Tall

6 Edgerton, Clyde Where Trouble Sleeps
New York Ballantine Books 1998 0345426320 / 9780345426321 First Thus Trade Paperback Very Good+ 
Illustrated by Zacharow, Christopher [cover]
Signed by Author
260 pp. Corners slightly bumped, front cover a little bowed out. Signed by author on title page; gift inscription on title page.

This is a Ballantine Reader's Circle edition and includes a special (unpaginated) "Reading Group Discussion Guide" at rear of book which contains a "Conversation with Clyde Edgerton" and Edgerton's "interview" with one of the main characters, Jack Umstead. Also laid in is a November, 1998 newspaper photo of the author announcing a local reading of "Where Trouble Sleeps." Presumably this copy was signed at that reading.
From an "Entertainment Weekly" review: "Here, evil comes to sleepy Listre, NC, circa 1950, in the form of a stranger with a pencil-thin mustache and a trunkful of dirty movies. Listre is the kind of rustic crossroads where the most exciting event in years was a collision between a mule and a pickup truck, where boys slip over to the Gulf station for a Nehi and a peek at the pinup calendar . . . where it seems like nothing ever changes - until the fateful day when everything changes at once."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall; Signed by Author
