Hardcover, ID: 818064914

NY: Broadway Books, 2004. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. From the book, ""Bouyed by support from a group of fellow compulsive eaters she deems ""the Stepfords,"" Frances adjusts not only to her new waistline but to a strange new world--the Planet of Thin--where she doesn't speak the language and doesn't know the rules. Her lifetime of obesity had robbed her of the joys of lovers, a husband, children--and even made it impossible to enjoy a movie, when standing in line was too painful, or travel, when airplane seats were too small--and hadn't prepared her for the unexpected attention from strangers, the deep pleasure of trying on a tailored suit, the satisfaction of a good run on a treadmill, or the saucy fun of flirting and dating."" Hard cover in very good condition. Text block clean and tight. There is an inscription of the former owner on the front fly sheet. No other markings noted. Dust jacket in very good condition. Stated First Edition., Broadway Books, 2004, New York: E. P. Dutton. Fine in Fine dust jacket 1985. First Edition. Hardcover. Marfree, acidfree F/Fine 1stEd; not written-in, underlined, clearance or discard. Usually mails within 12 hours. ; 314 pages; From Library Jour: This collection consists of the 21 stories published in Spark's Collected Stories: I (Knopf, 1968) plus six new ones. Several of the stories originally appeared in the New Yorker. The short story is a form well suited to Spark's gifts as a writera delicate touch, a quiet sense of irony, and a vision of existence as a conflict between the temporal and the timeless. Frequently, her characters are involved in slightly sinister experiences that have unnerving effects (``The Twins, ''``The Executor, ''``Another Pair of Hands'') . The situtations range from the development of a shrewd marriage of convenience (``The Fathers' Daughters'') to the depiction of a baby's view of World War I (``The First Year of My Life'') . Crafted with impressive skill, the stories reflect a keen perception of human weakness and the possibility of its redemption. Sherrie Tuck, Episcopal Div. Sch. /Weston Sch. Of Theology Libs. , Cambridge, Mass. Copyright 1985 Reed. From AudioFile: These stories, set before and after WWII, give a real feel for the range of Spark's fiction. They include ghost stories, love stories and politics, all shot through with the author's skeptical view of human worth. Here are jealous lovers, brutish colonials, spoiled middle-class women, curious children and, frequently, the outsider, the young woman who observes and holds her own counsel, the writer's alter ego... ., E. P. Dutton, 1985
