A handsome first printing of the first Large Print edition in Fine condition in alike dust-jacket. Signed by author John Updike.
Updike has been writing about golf since he took the game up at the age of twenty-five. "In many weathers inner and outer amind many a green and winding landscape, I have asked myself what the peculiar bliss of this demanding game is, a bliss that at times threatens to relegate all the rest of life ... to the shadows." - John Updike; B & W Drawings.
