CHEEVER, John

The Way Some People Live

First edition. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper with a very small nick near the base of the spine and a faint spot on the spine, but an especially bright and fine example. Signed by the author and dated in 1976. Cheever's uncommon first book, a collection of short fiction that he never allowed to be reprinted. Only three of the stories have ever been subsequently printed, in an obscure paperback published in the 1960s. Consequently Cheever was loathe to sign copies, and this is one of only a very few thus. Combined with the especially nice condition, this may be the best copy we've seen.
