A great copy of the world first printing first edition US hardback. A superb novel with two cities vividly brought to life - Chicago and Bucharest. Humour and pathos are almost the calling card from this great Nobel Laureate. He never disappoints his reader. No damaged corners, and a complete protected jacket without the usual sun damage to the spine. The author's signature is directly positioned on the title page.

Albert Corde is a professor of journalism and dean of students at a Chicago university. He and his wife, Minna, travel to Bucharest, Romania, where Minna's mother has suffered a stroke.

Gradually it becomes clear that Corde's trip abroad is more than a brief interlude in a calm and orderly life, and that nothing will ever be the same again.
