Acceptable. A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (However the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text. Book may be a price cutter or have a remainder mark.
Good. Library withdrawal in the plastic, protective covers. Book has some scuff and shelf wear to the plastic. A card pocket is pasted on the inside back of the book. Light wear to the covers. This book looks presentable.

New York. 1980. Random House. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 186 pages. hardcover. 0394510720. keywords: Literature Australia. inventory # 1999. FROM THE PUBLISHER-If, in some post-Marxist utopia, obesity were declared counterrevolutionary, how would a houseful of fat men strike back? If it were possible to win a new body by lottery, what kind of people would choose ugliness? If two gun-toting thugs decided to take over a business--and run it through sheer terror--how far would their methods take them? These are the questions that Peter Carey, author of The Tax Inspector and Oscar and Lucinda, brilliantly explores in this collection of stories. Exquisitely written and thoroughly envisioned, the tales in The Fat Man in History reach beyond their arresting premises to utter deep and often frightening truths about our brightest and darkest selves.
