Synopsis:

Among the characters you'll find in this collection of twelve stories by Tobias Wolff are a teenage boy who tells morbid lies about his home life, a timid professor who, in the first genuine outburst of her life, pours out her opinions in spite of a protesting audience, a prudish loner who gives an obnoxious hitchhiker a ride, and an elderly couple on a golden anniversary cruise who endure the offensive conviviality of the ship's social director.

Fondly yet sharply drawn, Wolff's characters stumble over each other in their baffled yet resolute search for the "right path."

From the Back Cover:

The debut title in Ecco's the art of the Story Series—a collection of twelve short works of fiction that showcase Tobias Wolff's extraordinary craft

In the Garden of the North American Martyrs, Tobias Wolff's first collection of short fiction, hailed the arrival of a major talent and the beginning of an acclaimed, bestselling career. In each of these sharply crafted stories, his characters, drawn from everyday life, stumble over each other in their baffled yet resolute search for the "right path."

Among the characters in these twelve stories are a teenage boy who tells morbid lies about his home life; a timid professor who, in the first genuine outburst of her life, pours out her opinions in spite of a protesting audience; a prudish loner who gives an obnoxious hitchhiker a ride; and an elderly couple on a golden anniversary cruise who endures the offensive conviviality of the ship's social director.

Book Description Ecco, New York, 1981. First Edition. First Edition. A Collection of Short Stories. Signed by Wolff on the title-page. Stated first edition, first printing, with no mention of any later printing on copyright page. First collection, second book by the author of THIS BOY'S LIFE. 8vo beige cloth. Small remainder-mark bottom page edges - and it has left a tiny mark on one of the bottom edges, just touching the jacket as well. Otherwise this is a fine copy in a near-fine unclipped dj (with 10.95 price). The dj has a few minor scuffs and a tiny soil spot front panel, and the spine is justslightly darkened. Overall quite a nice copy despite flaws. Seller Inventory # 27345
