What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Original Binding, Proof Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, Uncommon

An advance proof copy of the debut novel of American author and short-story writer, Jean Stafford.

Bound in the publisher's original paper wraps, with 'Confidential' to the front cover.

This insightful novel tells the story of Sonia Marburg, a young woman from a working-class background from the outskirts of the city, trying to achieve her dream of integrating into the wealthy Bostonian society of Beacon Hill.

'Boston Adventure' was the inspiring first novel of Stafford, dealing with the struggles of the class system in America.

Condition

Bound in the publisher's original wraps. Externally, very smart, with light creasing to the extremities and spine, and light age toning. The occasional mark to wraps, with a slightly larger stain to the rear. Internally, firmly bound, with bright, clean pages.

Very Good Indeed
