A just about Fine first printing of the first edition in Near Fine condition with minor edgewear, slightly tanned dust-jacket, signed and inscribed by author Russell Banks on the title page.
Last year Russell Banks made his mark with Continental Drift, one of the strongest novels of the year, and as it may well prove to be, of the decade. Both realistic and visionary, the story of Bob DuBois, a solid blue-collar worker in a radical state of drift, is a tragedy from the broken heartland of America, a good man led into evil by the economic nihilism of our time and place. Most of the twelve narratives in Success Stories touch on the same subject, though in ways that are more various, open, and low-keyed (from the dust-jacket).
