JESUS OUT TO SEA: Stories.
Edition: First printing, a trade paperback original.
New York: Simon & Schuster, (2007). SIGNED first edition - A collection of eleven short stories issued as a trade paperback original in the US. From the Booklist review: "Although some of the stories concern individuals caught in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina - the ultimate circumstance beyond one's control - the majority are set in the past, usually rural Louisiana or Mississippi in the late 1940s. Whether the lead characters are abused children or prostitutes trying to escape the life, Burke always makes us see both the near certainty of tragedy to come and the smoldering embers of possibility in the ashes of blighted lives." SIGNED on the title page. 240 pp. ISBN: 978-1416548560.
Condition: Fine in illustrated wrappers.
