Book Description Harper's Magazine Press, New York, 1974. Hardboard and Cloth. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. First Edition and Printing. 18 short stories by this critically acclaimed, award-winning author/surgeon. " This first collection of stories by Richard Selzer is firmly set in the fabulist tradition. There is strong sense of the macabre, often heightened by dark irony and wit. Lonely characters contest with themselves. Whenever two people meet, blood is inevitably drawn. This is the case in "The Consultation," where the collision is between a surgeon and a prostitute, and in "A Blue Ribbon Affair," where a nurse and an orderly face facts in a morgue. For most the struggle is solitary." 193 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 006154
