Sinclair, Iain. American Smoke: Journeys to the End of the Light. London: Hamish Hamilton, 2013, first edition, first printing (precedes the American release). Hardcover with dust jacket (jacket unfolds into a stylized map of the United States). New, unread copy. SIGNED by Sinclair on the title page. Dust jacket is in a fresh mylar cover. Also included is “Cowboy/Deleted File,” a chapter that was removed from American Smoke, which is reproduced on twelve loose-leaf sheets, meant to mimic the mimeograph look, contained in a plain brown folder with a paper label (fine condition). Cowboy was only available at the London release party for American Smoke. “The visionary writer Iain Sinclair turns his sights to the Beat Generation in America in his most epic journey yet … A book filled with bad journeys and fated decisions, American Smoke is an epic walk in the footsteps of Malcolm Lowry, Charles Olson, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Gary Snyder, and others, heated by obsession (the Old West, volcanoes, Mexico) and enlivened by false memories, broken reports, and strange adventures. With American Smoke, Sinclair confirms his place as the most innovative of our chroniclers of the contemporary.” We ship our books in boxes or cardboard wraps, never in bags. Bay Leaf Books (Member ABAA, ILAB, IOBA) is an open shop dedicated to offering fine books for discriminating readers. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
