The Forms of Fiction
New York: Random House, 1962. 657 pages. John Garner's first book, a textbook for English students consisting of an introductory essay on forms of fictional narratives, followed by an anthology of short stories by Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, Katherine Anne Porter, Mark Twain, et al. ISBN: B000OP7ETG.
First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a very good dust jacket. There is debate about whether this book, intended as a text book, was ever issued in a dust jacket for the first edition. In any case, this copy is very good, with some spotting to the spine, in a very good dust jacket, with light tanning to the spine and some light staining to the price-clipped dust jacket. Whether this dust jacket is original to the book, or married from a later printing, is beyond the skill of this cataloguer. Dust jackets for this book, on any printing, are vanishingly scarce. [JSP01]
