Price: $20.00 USD

Condition: Very Good


Blue cloth on boards. No marks or damage. This author "passed from relative obscurity during his lifetime to almost total oblivion after his death." - Winnifred M. Bogaards. How this could happen after Music at the Close won the 1947 Ryerson Fiction Award is puzzling. One distraction for me is that the protagonist's name is Neil Armstrong. 228 pp. View more info
