Condition: See description

Traverse City, MI Arbutus Press, 2005. Paperback First Ed thus; unstated. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY AUTHOR. First Ed thus; unstated. Very Good in Wraps: shows indications of light use: dampstaining at the bottom corner of the last fifty pages or so; mild rubbing to wrapper covers; binding secure; text clean. No longer 'As New', but remains clean, sturdy, and quite presentable. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 104pp. Trade Paperback. Thirteen literary short stories set in northern Michigan describe the coming of age of Jack Young. Jack works at a canoe livery on the Platte River in what is now Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The stories focus on his efforts to find meaning in a world that seems increasingly dishonest to him. Jack's uncompromising search for truth becomes the source of his defiance. The loneliness of male adolescence has never been more movingly articulated. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY AUTHOR.
