Very Good in Very Good jacket. Book 1st Edition. Hard bound in dust jacket. Previous owner's name in ink on front free end paper. Dust jacket shows some minor shelf wear, otherwise in very good condition.
Near Fine in Near Fine jacket. 8vo (octavo). Gray cloth over boards with silver titles on spine and orange topstain; jacket has black front panel and spine with orange and yellow titles, and author photo on rear panel. If not for the slightest possible sunning at spine head and tail, book would be fine: square, tight, unmarked. Jacket has some minor rubbing, and a tiny bit of wrinkling at the spine head and tail, else fine, and not price-clipped--looks fresh and bright in mylar. First printing stated. This collection of twelve stories and one novella captures all the beauty and severity of the subcultures within urban ghettos. Neugeboren masterfully exploits sports as an arena for fiction, tackles themes of marital strife, racial anxiety and family tragedy, and delivers it all with distinctive Brooklyn humor.
