What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

The first edition of this work. In the original unclipped dustwrapper. The dustwrapper was printed on the reverse of another book's dustwrapper, due to paper shortages during the war. 'The Wide Net' is a selection of entertaining short stories, containing 'First Love', 'A Still Moment', 'Asphodel', 'The Purple Hat', and more. This was the author's second collection of short stories. Written by Eudora Welty, an American novelist known for her works about the American South. She is best known for her Pulitzer Prize winning novel 'The Optimist's Daughter'.
