Garden City, NY: Dial Press/Doubleday, 1984.
First printing. 227 pp., 8vo. Quarter-cloth and paper over boards in illustrated dust-jacket. Slight impression to top edge of first two leaves from paperclip, otherwise very good in a lightly soiled jacket. Item #281
Bausch's third novel, with a typed note laid in, dated in the month before publication, presenting this copy to James Baldwin "with love and respect from the author." (Baldwin's address in France given below the date; the note has several horizontal creases from folding but is otherwise very good.) A nice association.
