In the Garden of North American Martyrs: Stories.
by Wolff, Tobias.
A Near Fine copy in a Very Good, 2nd issue jacket that is price clipped with a sticker shadow on the flap; there is also clean slice to fold of front flap that is barely perceptable. Some of the characters in this collection of twelve stories by Tobias Wolff are a teenage boy who tells morbid lies about his home life, a timid professor who, in the first genuine outburst of her life, pours out her opinions in spite of a protesting audience, a prudish loner who gives an obnoxious hitchhiker a ride, and an elderly couple on a golden anniversary cruise who endure the offensive conviviality of the ship's social director. Sharply drawn, Wolff's characters stumble over each other in their baffled yet resolute search for the "right path."
