WOMEN DRINKING BENEDICTINE.
Edition: First printing.
Columbus, OH: Ohio State University Press, (1998) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - Award-winning author's second collection of short stories: ten stories ranging from Pittsburg to Hawaii, to Michigan's Upper Peninsula and Europe. One reviewer noted that "Humor and compassion in almost equal measures invest [this] collection with a certain offbeat charm. Consider, for example, the title story, in which three gorgeous models suddenly appear in a small northern Michigan town, drink Benedictine in the local watering hole, and then vanish again, compelling a local drunk to follow them into the wintry landscape - and this is merely a subplot to the main story of a woman trying to kill her husband in as kindly and gentle a way as possible because she loves him too much to shoot or poison him. . . Dilworth's voice is original, and she serves up her stories with a twist. These are characters that live on in the memory after the book is finished." SIGNED on the title page, and uncommon thus. 213 pp. ISBN: 0-814208126.
Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
