Item #74936 THE 158-POUND MARRIAGE. John Irving.


New York: Random House, 1974. First Edition. Hardcover. Irving's third novel. The darker vision and sexual ambiguities of this erotic, ironic tale about a ménage a quatre in a New England university town foreshadow those of The World According to Garp (1978); but this very trim and precise novel is a marked departure from the author's generally robust, boisterous style. Octavo. Original green paper-covered boards over a green cloth spine, with green and gilt titles. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket with just a hint of edgewear. Fine / Fine. Item #74936
ISBN: 0394484142
