(xix) + (1) + 263 pp. Illustrated in colour with the paintings of John Berkey, evoking the atmosphere and period beautifully - almost a Norman Rockwell feel to the illustrations. "Anderson profoundly changed the American short story, transforming it from light, popular entertainment into literature of the highest quality. His art belonged as much to an oral as a written tradition, and, as this collection shows, the best of his stories echo the language and the pace of a man talking to his friends. They explore with penetrating compassion the isolation of the individual and capture the emotional undercurrents hidden beneath ordinary events." Apart from the slightly faded spine this copy is Near AS NEW and has NO Inscriptions or other Marks at all. ALL pages are clean, crisp, unmarked and uncreased. Overall a Very Good, Tight, Bright, Clean and Sharp cornered copy. See Images, and/or ask for further details/images.
