NY, FSG, (1971). Inscribed by Malamud, "For Catharine and Mike/ With love going on and on / Bern," presumably his long-time friends Mike Seide and his wife, Katharine Shattuck, despite the misspelling of Katharine: these books were acquired with two others that had the correct spelling. Oddly, in Malamud's daughter's memoir My Father is a Book, Shattuck's name is also spelled as "Catherine." Fine in a near fine dust jacket with fading to the spine lettering and wear to the crown.

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
