Edition: First printing.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1974. dj. Hardcover first edition - Her rather uncommon fifth novel - one of my favorites among her books, a sad and penetrating look at the inability of people to connect. Jeremy Pauling is one of the most unusual protagonists in fiction, and Tyler's portrayal of him is masterful. ISBN: 0-394-49038x.
Condition: Although there are no library stamps, this book shows signs of a pocket or bookplate being removed from the front endpaper, as well as evidence of much reading - so good only in a very good, unmarked dustjacket (some fading to the back of the dj.)
