First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper “To John and Harriet with love, John Cheever. October 10/1978”. There is evidence of an aborted inscription by Cheever on the dust jacket. A second, fine jacket is provided. The recipients were Cheever’s long-term friends, John and Harriet Weaver.
