(#164178) A HOUSE ABOVE CUZCO. August Derleth.

A HOUSE ABOVE CUZCO. New York: The Candlelight Press, 1969. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. Avrel Millerand, a Midwestern writer has pulled up roots and gone to live in the Andes above Cuzco. Benton, his biographer comes to visit, intent on solving a riddle in CAITLIN, a volume of Millerand's poems. In the end the biographer discovers the writer's secret, but he cannot use it. "Though strictly speaking this novella is not part of the Sac Prairie Saga, its inclusion here can be justified on two grounds: first, it refuses to fit anywhere else, and second, its hero, author Avrel Millerand, appears to be a thinly disguised portrait of Derleth himself." - Wilson 547. Wilson 547. A fine copy in fine price-clipped dust jacket. (#164178).

Price: $35.00
