Yet these 'safe' classics endure partly because they satirise conventional adult society and speak with dangerous directness to a young reader's imagination . . . In this witty and engaging collection of essays, Alison Lurie entices us back to that half-forgotten world." Book weight approx. 480g. . First Edition, First Impression. Hardcover and Dustjacket.
