Otto, Lon  
A Nest of Hooks (Iowa Short Fiction Award Ser.)

Publisher: University of Iowa Press Iowa City, IA, U.S.A. 1978.
White glazed heavy wraps with silver fishhook and titles. Winner of the Iowa School of Letters Award for Short Fiction. Warmly INSCRIBED to a noted American poet. Lon Otto describes himself and his work thus: '..it was during several months spent running a bicycle shop in Manhattan that I discovered a strangeness in the world that could only be borne in fiction. Later, I had a biref career as a bicycle racer, devoid of glory. Several of my stories in A Nest of Hooks involve bicycles, and almost all were written in sight of an old poster on which a naked woman clings serenely to a parrot-winged bicycle.' That gives you a taste..the book has a slight hint of cover toning, a very small spot at the edge of one 'hook' and some short abrasion marks in the gloss of the rear cover.
