Joseph Wambaugh inscribes a typescript of the opening lines of his first novel, The New Centurions.
Typescript inscribed and signed: "To Bill/Joseph Wambaugh/Aug 1980", 1p, 8½x11. The opening lines of his first novel, The New Centurions, published in 1970. Wambaugh had been a detective for the LAPD for ten years when he published The New Centurions, the first of his novels and non-fiction drawn from his experience. Joseph Wambaugh, Jr. (born in 1937) had been with the Los Angeles Police Department for ten years beforepublishing his first novel, The New Centurions (1971). Credited with transforming the sub-genre of the police novel into serious literature, his books also include The Blue Knight (1972), The Onion Field (1973) and The Choirboys (1975), and his work on the Police Story television series in the 1970s set standards of realism, dialogue and character development for subsequent writers of police dramas. Lower left corner creased. Fine condition.
