About This Item

New York: Macmillan, 1963. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. First edition. Fine in about very good dustwrapper with a stain on the spine and small tears. A collection of short stories by a New Yorker editor, all of which appeared in that magazine. Warmly Inscribed by Maxwell's to his fellow editor at *The New Yorker*, Rachel MacKenzie: "For Rachel with love, Bob September 26, 1963." MacKenzie replaced Katherine White as the fiction editor at *The New Yorker* on the recommendation of May Sarton. During her tenure at the magazine MacKenzie was noted for her nurturing and editing of, among others, Sarton, Philip Roth, Muriel Spark, and especially Isaac Bashevis Singer. MacKenzie's enthusiasm led to the magazine devoting an entire issue to Spark's *The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie*. However, the magazine wouldn't publish *Goodbye, Columbus* as she recommended because William Shawn was too squeamish over the more "frank" aspects of the novella.
