The Grass Arena

London: Faber and Faber, 1988. First Edition. SIGNED by the author on the title page: "John Healy / 19-2-2011 / Dublin." Accompanying the book is a ticket to a screening of the 2011 Irish documentary, "Barbaric Genius," on the same date at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival. The documentary tells the story of Healy's rise from wino and street thief to chess master and noted novelist--the essence of this book, a key entry in the pantheon of outsider literature.

The inevitable toning to the page edges is present, else Fine and unread in a Fine dust jacket.
