New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1980. First Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good / Very Good. Item #057575
Signed, and inscribed to a named individual, by the author at the title page. Pages crisp and clean except for mild foxing around the head and foreedges of the page block; no owners' marks; binding square and tight; hard cover shows some light rubbing at corners and a little softening at spine ends, otherwise excellent. Jacket has a small, clear water stain at the spine heel, visible only from inside the jacket, and a few scattered, very light pressure marks front and back; the spine ends and corners show mild shelf rubbing and tiny chips; there is a curved crease at the top rear edge and a short scratch at the left rear; yet overall, the jacket remains clean and attractive, the color vivid, the price unclipped; now protected in a clear sleeve. Pulitzer-winning author's first novel.
