$25.00

Tobias Wolff is one of the most acclaimed short story writers of the last 60 years. He is a key figure in the short story renaissance of the late twentieth century, alongside Raymond Carver and John Cheever. His work has appeared in numerous literary magazines, including The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Granta, and Harper’s. He is a PEN/Faulkner Award recipient and a winner of the National Medal of Arts. This volume, Old School, is arguably his best short novel. It is a semi-autobiographical narrative about a soon-to-be-graduating student who aspires to be an author. In his quest for literary greatness, the narrator crosses paths with Robert Frost, Ayn Rand, and almost Ernest Hemingway–all of whom are notable visitors to his prep school. Critics quickly praised the work for its striking humor and quality of prose. It is indeed Wolff’s most writerly text.

This first edition is in fine condition. In the original cloth spine, fine. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, especially fine.

A fine first edition of a spectacular 21st century novel.
