1 Whitbread, Thomas B. (edited and with an Introduction by) Seven Contemporary Authors : Essays on Cozzens, Miller, West, Golding, Heller, Albee, and Powers
Austin University of Texas Press 1966 First Edition Hardcover SIGNED
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full, light brown cloth. The spine is stamped in black and gilt. Yellow endpapers. xv, 175pps. A previous owner's bookplate is affixed to the ffep., otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no reading wear. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a small touch of crinkling at the top of the rear panel and a 1" closed tear at the bottom of the front panel; the original price is intact. SIGNED by the editor on the ffep: interestingly enough, the editor's inscription to the owner and wife has been covered over by the aforementioned bookplate of the same owner and, presumably, a later wife. The signature, itself, is uncovered.

"These seven critical essays, each on a contemporary novelist, are disparate in content, but all are concerned with the problem of evil and inhumanity and with the paradoxes of human existence. Each essay discusses a different author, but this independence of subject is resolved into a central theme through the interpretive approach followed by the seven critics. Each of the contributors presents his subject against the background of the current disillusionment and frustration of our age. Underlying each essay are undertones of the 'absurdity' of life today for those who consider it thoughtfully, and the contrast between what men would like reality to be and what they actually find."
