Crews, Harry. EIGHT-PAGE HEAVILY CORRECTED TYPESCRIPT of his story, "The Knowledge And Language Of The Groin." The story was published in the February 1989 issue of Playboy and is the hilarious account of a man trapped on a roof in the middle of the night naked as the day he was born. The typescript manifests the unflagging care taken by its author -- replete with emendations in blue and red ink on every page -- as the story is brought to its hard-won, colloquial conclusion by its good-old-boy narrator. With an inscribed 8" x 10" photograph of a bleary-eyed Crews squinting at the camera: "This was a bad morning man, Harry Crews." Fine. Unbound.
