Descripción

Fine/No Jacket. The"Lizard Woman" was first published by Horace Liveright in 1930 under the title of "Fever Pitch" and is Frank Water's first novel. It was published again in paperback in 1955. Both attempts were failures. Waters would not allow republication of this, his first work, until, due to the untiring efforts of Paul Foreman, this volume was published by a small Austin, Texas press. Rare.

Sinopsis:

"The novel was begun in 1926, when I was twenty-four years old and working as a telephone engineer in Imperial Valley, on the California-Baja California border. During my stay there I made a horseback trip down into the little-known desert interior of Lower California. After having lived all of my early years in the high Rockies of California, I was unprepared for the vast sweep of sunstruck desert with its flat wastes, clumps of cacti, and barren parched-rock ranges. Its emotional impact was so profound, I was impelled to give voice to it with pencil and paper."

— Frank Waters

First published in 1930 under the title Fever Pitch, The Lizard Woman is Frank Waters’ first novel. It foreshadows a theme central to Waters’ later work: that we must attune our spirits to the land to fully understand our places in the natural order.

From the Back Cover:

First published in 1930 under the title Fever Pitch, The Lizard Woman is Frank Water's first novel. It foreshadows a theme central to Waters' later work: that we must attune our spirits to the land to fully understand our places in the natural order. Waters once made a long trip on horseback deep into Mexico, and this is knitted up in his well-wrought story of The Lizard Woman.
