Very Good in VG jacket. 0374176531 Dust jacket condition: VG. First ed. Private collector's volume number inscribed at front endpaper. Jacket protected by removable Brodart Mylar cover. Very nice clean copy. The Weekend Man, Richard Wright's superb first novel, immediately placed him in the company of Brian Moore, Robertson Davies, and Mordecai Rich-ler among contemporary Canadian novelists. His second novel shows again that the pleasures and insights his fiction offers are in no sense regional or national. For his new novel is one of the most affecting and illuminating works we've had dealing with the by-now familiar "crisis of the middle years" in urban life. In the Middle of a Life covers three days in the life of Freddy Landon, a forty-two-year-old, unemployed greeting-card salesman who lives in a small apartment in one of the older, seedier parts of Toronto. 305 pages.
