After the War

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2000. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, in a Fine dust jacket; a posthumously published novel -- the last of her novels to be published -- a follow-on novel to the popular Southern Exposure by Alice Adams. Of the novel, Publisher's Weekly stated: "Reading this posthumous novel is a bittersweet experience. On the one hand, it's wonderful to be back in the Southern town of Pinehill, and to enjoy Adams's inimitable prose and her calm intimacy with the characters introduced in A Southern Exposure. On the other, it's a pity to realize that we'll never know what future lives Adams had planned for these vibrant individuals. WWII is raging as the novel opens in 1944...." A Fine copy of this fine author's final novel. (Alice Adams died in 1997.). Fine / fine. Item #744

Price: $25.00
