The Princeton Anthology of Writing
Princeton, Princeton University Press, (2001). The hardcover issue of this collection of nonfiction co-edited by McPhee and with a preface by him that has not appeared elsewhere, explaining the origins of Princeton's focus on literary journalism. This anthology is ample evidence of the success of that focus, as it includes such writers as Jane Kramer, Jonathan Schell, Leslie Cockburn, Larry L. King, Richard Gilman, Victor Navasky, Jeremy Bernstein, Geoffrey Wolff, James Gleick, Gloria Emerson, and many more, all of whom passed through Princeton. Also includes McPhee's "Travels of the Rock" from his collection Irons in the Fire. Very slight bowing to boards; else a fine copy, without dust jacket, as issued. Uncommon in the hardcover first printing. [#034703] $175
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
