1 Treadway, Jessica Absent Without Leave : And Other Stories
New York, NY, U.S.A. Delphinium Books, Incorporated 1992 0-671-79213-X / 9780671792138 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover SIGNED by the Author
Near Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Blue boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. 192pps. There is mild bumping to the upper tips and a slight abrasion to the fore-edge of the ffep., otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is very lightly rubbed; the original price is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the ffep.

"...Two sisters meet for the first time after their father has killed their sister and himself; a man dying of cancer rescues a small boy from a closed refrigerator; an alcoholic, long divorced, shows up at his daughter's wedding; a man who long ago abused his daughter realizes at last the full impact of what he has done.
These are among the situations described in 'Absent Without Leave,' and they hit with a force that will shake you, disturb you, and teach you truths you do not already know. The tales are clear-eyed but deeply moving; the characters spring three dimensional and alive from her pages; the stories are dangerous and fearless and thus not sentimental. We are confronting life here, made vivid by art..."
