Title: Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories and ...

Publisher: Doubleday, New York

Publication Date: 1971

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition


A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine, unclipped dust jacket with some shallow chipping to the heel of the spine. Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories is a universal orchestration of Midwestern puberty rites, from the gut-wrenching playground antics of one Delbert Bumpus, to the supernal glow surrounding unapproachable high school beauty Daphne Bigelow, to the memorable disaster that was Shepherd's junior prom. A comic genius who bridges the gap between James Thurber and David Sedaris, Shepherd may have accomplished for Holden, Indiana, what Mark Twain did for Hannibal, Missouri. The eight episodes included in this second collection of youthful tales features such memorable events as summer vacation, a trip to the county fair, unearthing a box of old toys, life with next-door neighbors and the mysterious girl next door whom every boy wanted to date but never did.
