Bech: A Book

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1970.

Price: $950.00

First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author: "for Susan Sheehan, an old-time Bechite, Cheers, John Updike." Updike and Sheehan were colleagues at The New Yorker for nearly 50 years, both, among other things, contributing frequently to The Talk of the Town. Both won Pulitzer Prizes: Updike for Rabbit is Rich and Rabbit at Rest; Sheehan for General Non-Fiction for her 1983 book Is There No Place on Earth for Me? A lovely copy and a nice association.
