Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1959. Hardcover. First edition. A near fine book in a very good dust jacket. Darkening to the jacket spine, wear at the extremities and soiling to the rear panel. Stated first printing. Price clipped. This is Philip Roth's uncommon first book, a collection of stories, which won the Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship and marked Roth as an author to watch. The novella-- from which the title of the book was taken-- was later made into a movie that starred Richard Benjamin and Ali MacGraw. Signed by Roth on the title page. Signed by the author.
