New York: Farrar Straus Giroux, (1973).
Hardcover. First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author to Gordon Lish, who published two of the stories in this volume when he was the fiction editor at *Esquire*: "For Gordon Lish, lovingly, Bernard Malamud." An unusually affectionate inscription for Malamud, and a splendid association.
