The Watch, Stories

New York; (1989): W.W. Norton and Co. First Edition. Octavo. Item #023274

Signed by the author. 190pp. Bass's first book of fiction. A remarkable group of stories. All the people in this first collection are beset by time. Some are running from it, others trying to stay ahead, and still others racing to recapture its passed-by sweetness. Rooted in the creative tradition of the South, these stories are strong and fresh, often funny, and lyrical. They are about people who are hopelessly loyal, about the patience of the natural world. A fine bright copy bound in 1/4 blue-green cloth over paper covered boards, spine lettering silver, in a fine unclipped pictorial dust jacket.

Price: $100.00
