About this Item

First Printing. Small 8vo; 157pp. Publisher's French blue cloth, spine lettered in gold; pictorial dust jacket priced at 10s/6d. About Fine, cloth bright and clean, gilt lettering brilliant, but with light foxing to preliminaries and top edge; in a Fine jacket with very minor professional restoration (involving none of the design or lettering) to reinforce several closed tears and to fill two trivial losses. A novella and five short stories, two of which, "The Defender of the Faith" and "The Conversion of The Jews," now widely anthologized and placed among Roth's best short fiction. "Intermingling comedy and tragedy, the hilarity and heartbreak of modern Jewish life, Columbus follows Roth's hero, Neil Klugman, as he struggles to cope with a burgeoning love affair, to tolerate his empty lifestyle and his barren surroundings in Newark, New Jersey, and to decide whether the materialistic goals he now espouses are worth pursuing." The first book from "arguably the greatest American master of fictional doppelgangers." (Literary Encyclopedia) Yet another example of the value to be found in the graphically superior designs of most UK editions of American authors' works (our specialty). Note: With few exceptions (always noted), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB0512
