Fiction. Reprint. Paul West is one of the English language's finest novelists. Considered by many to be among his greatest and most rewarding books THE PACE IN FLOWERS WHERE POLLEN RESTS recounts an odyssey from Arizona's Hopi mesas to the California motels where sex films get made, from Vietnam's battle zones to the very stars. First published in 1988, this edition contains a new introduction by David W. Madden, and two provocative essays by West on contemporary fiction. "West's astonishing novel...reveals a Joycean genius in its exuberant play of language, and its epic and mythic resonances..."--Paul West.
