About This Item

THERE IS NO LITTLE INDENTURE ON THE BACK COVER BOTTOM SPINE AREA. Stated First Edition, price-clipped but TEOS is still there(for those that don't know that is the 1st letter of each word of the title). Gray cloth with gold lettering and I added a grayish-black bar across the top to hide a faded area that looked like sunshine, and it does not look professional but is better. The spine ends are bruised but not bumped. There is a small smudge on the bottom page ends. Otherwise, there is not a mark or stain, very tight and square. The Dustjacket has very minor chipping on the spine ends and light shelf wear along the edges. Now in Brodart for protection. It is hard to find a decent copy of this book that is not a Book Club with its minor blemishes it had to be saved.

Synopsis

The Edge of Sadness is a novel by the American author Edwin O'Connor. It was published in 1961 and won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1962. The story is about a middle-aged Catholic priest in New England.

About Just One More Book

I am a private collector, mainly Pulitzer Prize winners, but I inherited 1000's of hardcovers and looking to sell them off. I will be relocating in the near future, and need to lighten the load.
