1 Gifford, Barry An Unfortunate Woman
San Francisco Donald S. Ellis / Creative Arts Book Company 1984 0-916870-73-1 / 9780916870737 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dj Illustrated by (dj) James Brill Adams 
[previous owner's signature at upper corner of front pastedown, otherwise a tight copy with no discernible wear; jacket has just the teensiest bit of wear at a couple of corners]. A woman in her late fifties, finding in difficult circumstances after a lifetime of misfortunes, recalls "her fabulous -- and not so fabulous -- glamorous life with 'the boys,' the big shot racketeers of 1940's Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Jamaica, Cuba and Florida [including' Ben [Bugsy] Siegel, Meyer Lansky, Johnny Reata and others." Errol Flynn pops up as a character, too.

2 Gifford, Barry Night People
New York Grove Press 1992 0-8021-1538-1 / 9780802115386 2nd printing Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dj Illustrated by (dj design) iT 
[very nice copy, tight/clean/unread, no discernible wear; jacket a tiny bit rubbed on the rear panel]. Four related novellas comprising a "road map of the American nightmare." The book "reaches even deeper into the vision of our world that Barry Gifford has painted in his earlier novels, and its pure light is often shocking. Yet no matter how odd, innocent, evil, or downright unearthly his characters are, Gifford dives into their souls, finds the truth of their lives, and delivers it to us with the energy and economy of a Picasso ink drawing." (All right, fine, but are we allowed to refuse delivery?)
