A nice first edition/first printing in seemingly unread Fine condition in alike 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.
Henry Bech, now fifty years old, reflects on his fame, travels the world, marries an Episcopalian divorcée from Westchester, and, as a suprise to all writes a book that becomes a runaway bestseller.
