About this Item

First Edition. Clean, bright copy. The "story of Peter Ringkoping, an octogenarian who lives on a small New England mountain where he has converted an old horse barn into a second-hand book store. On his journey hie is accompanied by his two middle-aged sons." and a cast of other often colorful characters. One barely noticeable bump to a single corner. Some darkening and one tiny rubbed spot to dustjacket near bottom of spine. Author is noted novelist (having been a finalist for both The National Book Award and The Pulitzer Prize), as well as a prolific, highly-respected theologian. The London Free Press wrote: "Buechner's work has often been praised for its ability to inspire readers to see the grace in their daily lives." Of this particular work of fiction, Buechner himself described the writing as "so painful that I find it hard, even now, to see beyond the memory of the pain to whatever merit it may have." Previous owner's signature to front free endpaper. NEAR FINE in Very Good Plus dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 64078
