Oh What a Paradise It Seems

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1982. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (rear board slightly wider than is the front board -- a production matter), in a Fine dust jacket; a work centered on the twice-widowed elderly computer-industry executive Lemuel Sears who pursues an ardent but unsuccessful love affair with a beautiful, but elusive woman named Renee. John Leonard (writing in the New York Times) described the work as "perfect Cheever; it is perfect, period" and Cheever's fellow author and friend, John Updike, preferred the book to Cheever's novel "Falconer". A Fine copy. Fine / fine. Item #1032
