Rock Springs
NY, Atlantic Monthly, (1987). The first collection of stories by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Independence Day. Inscribed by Ford to Andre Dubus, himself a master of the short story form: "with long-overdue admission of my admiration for your wonderful work. I hope some day we meet. I hope your work flourishes, as it has." Trace foxing and bumping; near fine in a very near fine dust jacket with a bit of fading to the spine lettering. A nice association copy between two of the preeminent fiction writers of their era. [#033255] $550

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