"AS PLAIN AND AS NATURAL AS DAYLIGHT"

TREVOR, William. The Ballroom of Romance. London: Bodley Head, (1972). Octavo, original grey-brown paper boards, original dust jacket. $450.

First edition of this collection of short stories by an acknowledged master of the genre.

"Because his prose is as plain and natural as daylight, his tremendous achievement seems effortless. Though he shares much of the richness of his countrymen Yeats and Joyce, he avoids their sourness of spirit, and though his vision of the human tragedy can be as dark as that of the Greeks, it is also deeply, though never entirely, comic" (New York Times). The stories in this collection "first appeared in the London Magazine, Transatlantic Review, Nova, Redbook, the Antioch Review, Winter's Tales, and Penguin Modern Short Stories. The story 'Going Home' was first broadcast by BBC radio as a radio play."

Fine condition.
