New York: Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc., 1965. First Edition. A lovely copy of Porter's highly-regarded collection of short fiction. The volume won Porter the National Book Award for Fiction in 1966, coming out ahead of, among others, both Flannery O'Connor and Peter Matthiessen. It also won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction - a distinction that few author's have achieved in their lifetimes. Item #1660
