Printing Details

First US edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 237pp.

A collection of 14 short stories which had previously appeared in the New Yorker. From the wrapper, "No one has done a more skilful job of capturing certain aspects of contemporary life. Most of his characters are young, married, and urban; as a writer Cheever is engrossed by their youth, the strains and burdens they feel in adult relationships, and the uneasy quality of their adjustment to the society in which they live".

Condition

A very good copy. The dustwrapper is a little creased to the edges and is now within a protective sleeve (hence the sheen in the photo). The book is in solid condition, with clean pages and secure binding but has a small water stain to the top margin for the last 30 pages but not affecting the text.
