BERRY, WENDELL
That Distant Land: The Collected Stories
Washington, D.C.: Shoemaker & Hoard, 2004. 1593760272. Stated First Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover. ISBN: 1593760272. Quarter bound in publisher's black cloth over red boards, gilt lettering on spine, maps on endpapers. That Distant Land includes twenty-three stories from Wendell Berry's Port William membership.

It reveals Wendell Berry as a literary master capable of managing an imaginative integrity over decades of writing with a multitude of characters followed over several generations. Combining The Wild Birds (1985), Fidelity (1992), and Watch With Me (1994), and including four never-before-collected stories and a map of Port William, this book offers rest for the weary, hope for the beleaguered, and strength for the rest of us.. Both the volume and the unclipped dust jacket are in perfect, pristine condition; unmarked, unopened, tight, square, and clean. NEW/NEW.. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. (vi), 440 pp. New in New dust jacket .

Quarter bound in publisher's wheat cloth ober tan boards, green lettering on spine and cover. In these seven interrelated stories we are again invited to Port William, Kentucky.

BRODKEY, HAROLD
Stories in an Almost Classical Mode
NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1988. 0394506995. Stated First Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover. ISBN: 0394506995. Stated first edition. Publisher's full black cloth, gilt lettering on red label on spine, fore-edge deckle. This is a collection of short stories, most of which were first published in "The New Yorker," between 1963 and 1988. This was Brodkey's first book in 30 years, and presaged his much-heralded first novel "The Runaway Soul." In fact, much of the material that would make up "The Runaway Soul" appeared in short story form in "Stories in an Almost Classical Mode." Literary critic Harold Bloom includes "Stories in an Almost Classical Mode" in his book, "The Western Canon." . The volume is in virtually perfect, pristine condition, unmarked, tight, square and clean, with only the very slightest sunning along the top edge only. The unclipped dust jacket shows only slight shelf-wear. FINE/NEAR FINE. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. (viii), 593, (3) pp. Fine in Near Fine dust jacket .

Philadelphia: The Jewish Publication Society of America, 1985. 0827602502. Stated First Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover. ISBN: 0827602502. Stated first edition (Philip and Muriel Berman Edition). Quarter bound in publisher's burgundy cloth over brick boards, gilt lettering on spine, gilt lettering and black decoration on cover, gray endpapers, fore-edge deckle. This volume of three short stories (Ceil, Lila, and Angel) was intended to be the first book publication of significant portions from the author's long-anticipated major novel, which was then "nearing completion," but Brodkey didn't publish that major novel, "The Runaway Soul," until 1991, and the two books do not in fact contain duplicative material.
