Cry to Heaven - first US edition
by Anne Rice
Nice collectible copy of the third novel written by Rice. This is the tale of the 'castrati' of the Italian operas, the young men who were kidnapped or sold into the life of singing as young boys, only to be castrated before puberty, in order to preserve their voices for the female leads in Italian operas. Dark, moving story, as told through a first person account.
Book is black boards with gold stamped spine. Square corners, no internal markings, stated first edition. Front board slightly bent, otherwise NF. Jacket is VG+, price intact. Minor edge wear, but no tears or chips.
Purchased as new when it came out, but book has been read a few times.
