Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------------LEAH, NEW HAMPSHIRE: THE COLLECTED STORIES OF THOMAS WILLIAMS, Introduction by John Irving. In his introduction to this posthumous collection of short stories by his former teacher and National Book Award Winner (The Hair of Harold Roux), John Irving calls Williams very much a New Hampshire man.'' With his simple but eloquent prose, Williams indeed exhibits great sympathy for the people and land of his adopted state. But even more, he understands the fragility of life, its deep sorrows, its enduring beauty and richness. Perhaps the author himself puts it best in the story of Horned Pouts Are Evil'': The closer we get to nature . . . the more we recognize ourselves as part of its infinite patience, its cruelty and beauty. Without the knowledge of danger, how can we aspire to be alive? We must keep our senses quivering.'' Williams's heroes and heroines are, above all else, survivors, people who through a sense of loss come to understand, consciously or unconsciously, this great truth. Most of these 15 stories first appeared in Esquire or The New Yorker in the Fifties and Sixties. It is good, at last, to have them all in one place. You are bidding on the stated Morrow First Edition from 1992. Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (they still crackle) (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. . Paypal is an acceptable alternative. I will ship internationally for additional charges. So bid soon and often for this magnificent, impossible-to-find LITERARY COLLECTIBLE. WANT TO SEE MORE??
