This is an amazing and unusual book. Published in 1964 it is basically San Francisco viewed from the very unique perspective of Chiang Yee.

From the author of International Bestseller 'The Last Kabbalist in Lisbon' this beautiful true First edition is in Very Fine condition. It has never been read.

With 'The Angelic Darkness', Zimler has written a haunting story of eroticism and redemption. It is a novel whose hypnotic combination of the ordinary with the fantastic evokes the po...
