I was delighted to receive an alert last week that Firsts: The Book Collector’s Magazine will be featuring Caleb Carr in their March/April 2015 issue. The focus of the feature, entitled From Misery Mountain: Collecting Caleb Carr, is described as follows on the magazine’s website:
Caleb Carr grew up in New York City in what might seem like a rarified literary atmosphere. His father’s close circle of friends included William Burroughs, Jack Kerouac and Alan Ginsberg. Did they directly affect young Caleb’s future career? Yes, but not in ways you might expect. We take a look at the author of The Alienist.
In addition to the feature article, the March/April issue also contains a checklist of first editions of Mr. Carr’s published work, ranging from his novels to his military history publications. As both a reader of Mr. Carr’s work and a bibliophile, I thoroughly look forward to receiving my copy of the March/April issue later this month.
If you would like to order a copy of the March/April issue, you can do so at the Firsts magazine website.
