JOHNSTON, Wayne. The Story of Bobby O'Malley. [Ottawa]:( Oberon, 1985). First Edition. Pp 190. 8vo, illustrated white cardcovers. "This is thebest first novel to come outof the Atlantic Provinces since David Adams Richards published 'The Coming of Winter' in 1974. Bobby O'Malley grew up as a Catholic in Newfoundland, in the small town of Kelies, the only son of the local weatherman and a schoolteacher. His memories cluster around the houses they lived in, the schools he went to, the uncles and aunts and ousins he knew as a boy. This is an extremely funny book and the account of how Ted O'Malley fixed the plumbing is likely to become a classic of its kind. it is also a warm and touching book. As a picture of its time, it is clear, true and absolutely unforgettable." - from the rear cover. Very good. Signed with inscription by Johnston on the title page. 50.00
