An attractive first edition/first printing in Near Fine condition, few bumps to board edges, seemingly unread; in Fine dust-jacket. From the collection of Betty Anderson, legendary art director of publisher Knopf in the late 20th century as evidenced by her (small and unobtrusive) inventory number and signature on front paste down.

A celebration and defense of the art of "idle talk"; a brilliant exploration of its role in literature (novels, memoirs, letters, journals) as well as in life.
