THE BOAR - FIRST HARD COVER. Night Shade Books, 2005. First Edition. 5 3/4 x 9. Trade Hardcover. As New / As New. ISBN: 1597800163. Best known for his celebrated mysteries featuring Hap Collins and Leonard Pine (The Two-Bear Mambo, Bad Chili), Lansdale wrote this shopworn coming-of-age tale in 1983 when he was still sunk in obscurity. His introduction explains that he set out to produce a YA novel like those by Gary Paulsen and Robert Cormier because, to his mind, their work was "closer to literary novels than those written for adults." Set in 1933 during the early Depression, with whispers of Mark Twain and an echo of Faulkner's The Bear, this yarn recounts the bravado of 15-year-old East Texas farm boy Richard Dale, who battles with "old Satan," a wild boar of mythic proportions.
