Three of a Kind
London, Faber and Faber, (1985). Three novellas. Inscribed by the author to Alison Lurie: "For Alison/ From Rachel/ with memories of good company in Manchester & a clear view to London." Assuming the year of publication to be the year of inscription, Lurie would have won the Pulitzer the preceding year for Foreign Affairs; the year following, 1986, the British Book Marketing Council named Ingalls' Mrs. Caliban as one of the 20 best novels by living American writers after World War II. Fine in a fine, price-clipped dust jacket. Provenance: the Lurie estate. A nice association. [#035583] $250
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
