Pink cloth boards with gilt lettering and embossed cover decoration of a swan. Hint of edgewear. Previous owner notation to front endpaper in pencil. Text is otherwise clean and white, no marks. Unclipped DJ shows mild edgewear, two small closed tears at head of spine. "This baker's dozen of new tales reveals a more astringent, more worldly view than before, which accepts the fact that humans are fallible and sometimes even more contemptible. But they are often comic too; and the author's wise compassion finds their redeeming features. A hospitalized bachelor, longing to go home to his cat, invents a step-neice to look out for him. A wife and an ex-wife confront each other over an ox-tail in their husband's kitchen. A traveling man in Dublin, feeding the swans, faces the emptiness in his life and the failure of his dreams." (from the jacket blurb). N° de réf. du libraire B81610
