About this Item

A very fine copy in a very fine unclipped jacket($6.95), This is a pastoral novel about plain human goodness. Here is a moving story of two people: a fat, gentle, middle aged man who runs a rural diner, and the young, plain girl who drifts into his life and remains to become part of it Quietly, delicately, the author reveals what these two are to each other as the years pass, as they move through the universal rituals of courtship and marriage, the birth of a child, the loss of innocence, confession, atonement, forgiveness, the acceptance of death. Considered by many as Gardner at his best. This wonderful collectible is protected in Mylar. Bookseller Inventory # 000278
