WHARTON, William. Birdy. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, (1979). Octavo, original half cream cloth, original dust jacket. $450.

First edition of Wharton’s first novel, signed on the dedication page by the author.

This book won the 1979 National Book Award. "An amazing work of real art… There's a literalism here, an eccentricity, so held-fast to itself that it utterly succeeds. Birdy is a boy who simply is trying to get closer to an ineffable grace that humans don't have, trying as hard and as completely as he can" (Kirkus Review).

A fine copy.
