NY, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, (1969). A review copy of his third book, a collection of stories and a novella, again set in the ghettos of New York City. The title novella won the Transatlantic Review Novella Award and is the story of a baseball player, continuing the author's propensity for using sports as a metaphor for, and a window onto, the problems of the larger society. Inscribed by the author in 1976. Fine in a very near fine dust jacket with a bit of fading to the spine title. [#012938] $50
