Yesterday I posted several books by this author:

The Bass Saxophone - this book is on the community wishlist. Mine is an alternate ISBN. It is a paperback, copyright 1980 with a foreward from the author titled "Red Music", an account of personal experiences that inspired the book (dated 1977). The book contains both short stories - Emoke and The Bass Saxophone. The cover art shows a large saxphone with a swastika on it, by Ian Pollock. The work is translated by Kaca Polackova-Henley.

Also posted yesterday -

Talkin' Moscow Blues (Subtitle - Essays about Literature, Politics, Movies, and Jazz) - This book is a collection of essays sharing personal experiences from his life (read my description/review). The book is a paperback in good condition. It does have a personal inscription from the friend who sent it to me on the inside front cover. The copyright is 1988. It was edited by Sam Solecki.

Sins for Father Knox - This is actually another book with Lieutenant Boruvka. It is supposed to take place before "The End of Lieutenant Boruvka." This book has a copyright of 1988, translated by Kaca Polackova-Henley. The cover art is by Gordon Robertson - black graphic on brown.

The Republic of Whores - This is another installment in the books featuring the character Danny Smiricky (read description/review). It is a hardcover, copyright 1993, translated by Paul Wilson. The cover art is by Russell Gordon.

Please contact me if you have any questions!

Thanks, Pat.
