SHADOW SHOW: An Autobiographical Insinuation.

Edition: First printing.

New York: Alfred Van Der Marck Editions. (1986) dj. Hardcover first edition - Published two years after his identity as an American Indian was shown to be false, he still claims in this book that the "shadow" in the title refers to the fact that he was adopted and that "the greatest mystery of my own life is my identity." The review in the Library Journal sums this up: "Dropping his American Indian persona to tour life-styles of the rich, famous, artistic, and dead, pop culturist and former rock journalist Highwater offers 31 vignettes (of Nin, Sontag, Trumbo, Cocteau, Kristofferson, Joplin, and so on). We learn little of Highwater except that he believes himself to be the misunderstood victim of mean critics." Illustrated with photographs. 236 pp. ISBN: 0912383240.

Condition: Very near fine in a like dustjacket.
