LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
The Viking Press, New York - first edition, 1980. Hardcover, 8½" x 5½", with dust jacket. Jacket is intact but has extensive short tears to top edge, and curled & creased flaps Boards show sun-fading, and top corners dumped. Binding firm. FAIR book in FAIR unclipped dust jacket. Green publisher's boards with black & gold type to blue spine linen, and author's initials ('BB') blocked in gold to front, and illustrated title page. This is a wonderful rambling essay on escape and discovery - a season at the racetrack, talking to trainers, owners, grooms, jocks and punters; a prisoner in his motel room, pondering the Platonists and Machiaveli, the history of the track, and observing the laws of the natural world. Barich is a real writer, astutely humorous, and sharply observant. [This bookseller read & thoroughly enjoyed this copy of this book!]
