The Works of Love

Wright Morris

Nice First Edition hardcover, pages clean, crisp, top edge red stained, binding tight. Cover boards fine, original black cloth, silver and bronze lettering. In a very good or better dust jacket, rubbing to edges, light soiling to the inside of back panel. An excellent, handsome copy --"When I was a boy of eight in the Platte Valley of Nebraska, my father made the first of the many moves that would prove to be of interest to a future writer of fiction. They were east to Chicago, the point on the map where all the lines pointed. Almost twenty years would pass before I would seek to recapture the past that I had experienced. The Works of Loveis the first fruit of that effort, and the linchpin in my novels concerned with the plains. The reader who has read The Home Place or The Field of Vision will find in this novel the crux of an experience I frequently return to but never exhaust."—Wright Morris
