HUNGRY HILLS., Ryga, George.  Dust jacket art by Jerry Lazare.

Author Name    Ryga, George. Dust jacket art by Jerry Lazare.

Title   HUNGRY HILLS.

Publisher    Longmans Canada, (Toronto, 1963), Ist edition.

Seller ID   13477

180 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "Although this powerful first novel is set in the Alberta foothills, it takes the reader into unknown country - an arid region created and peopled with unerring realism by a brilliant new writer. The story of young Mandolin's return to the only home he has known and his struggle to extricate himself from the web of futility and sorrow which he discovers to be his heritage, by fighting evil with evil, would be devastating in its starkness were it not for this young author's penetrating sympathy. His skilled depiction of character, his withering scorn of brutality and small-mindedness, his ability to stir the heart, turn this tragic tale into a most moving experience." Small light stain at bottom edge of both boards, very light browning to endpapers, tiny foxing marks on top of textblock, very light browing to edges of textblock. Dust jacket has a few small closed tears - one with creases, light edge wear, tiny chips at top of spine and top/bottom of flap-folds, moderate browning to spine, rear panel and some edges. VG-/G
