Used - Very Good


[i-x]+390 pages. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 4 3/4") bound in original publisher's grey cloth with gilt "SL" and tilt title to cover and author's name in black rectangles on spine in original first state, black over blue, jacket. (Pastore page 273) First edition. 10,000 copies of the black on blue dust jacket were printed. It is a warm human story, a story of people everyone knows, of a community anyone could live in. There is none of the deliberate out of scale characterization that makes one feel -- at times -- that he is mainly a satirist. There is the inescapable sense of familiarity in characters, in situations, in background, that made Main Street, Babbitt, Arrowsmith and Dodsworth live as household words. It is a story of marriage, the focus on Judge Timberlane and the lovely, somewhat unstable young wife, Jinny, who alternately stimulated his passion, his worship, his jealousy. But it is too the story of a community, of various types of people, patterns of marriage -- a story of an average mid-western small city today. Condition: Spine lightly soiled. Jacket spine ends and corners chipped, edge wear with some closed tears else very good in about very good jacket.
