Why We Love This

The Saddest Summer of Samuel S by J. P. Donleavy. New York: Delacorte Press, 1966. First printing. A short story from Donleavy set in Vienna, on the nature of growing old gracefully, with much of his whimsical charm and underlying melancholy. The edges of book and jacket show the faintest beginning of foxing, otherwise in perfect condition. Near fine condition. Hardcover.
