The Adventures of Augie March - Saul Bellow

Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1954, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Good - in Poor DJ. DJ creased and torn with notable loss at head of spine although not unpleasant. Top edges of text block dusty. Endpapers lightly spotted. Text clean.

This is a book written on the grand scale: it might be called a heroic comedy, for it is the first time a modern writer has given us an epic consciously written in the comic tradition. The result is a celebration of life that is both fantastic and realistic, tragic and clowning. 536pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
