Publisher: Jackson, MS: University Press Of Mississippi, 1987
Book Condition: Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: Fine
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. 303 pages. Published in 1987. The author's collection of interviews. Published in a very small and limited print run of 500 copies by a University Press as part of the now-legendary "Literary Conversations" Series. This First Hardcover Edition was sold to public libraries only and was never reissued. Should not be confused with the much more common Softcover Edition. Presents in the most collectible format possible a representative selection of interviews conducted by various writers, journalists, and scholars with the author. Gives a rich, complex, and lively overview of both the life and mind of one of America's most important writers. Presented in chronological order, the interviews cumulatively amount to an absorbing account of one of the greatest literary journeys of the 20th century, which is the explicit intention of the publisher with each writer who is included in the now-legendary Series. "Fiction is our most intimate and acute means of communication, at a profound level, about our deepest apprehension and intuitions on the meaning of life and death" (John Cheever). One of the greatest Series of its kind ever undertaken in our time, this is an absolute "must-have" title for John Cheever collectors. This title is a great collection. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: All other copies available online are the Softcover Edition, in subsequent printings. A rare copy thus. One of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. A fine copy.
