Bibliographic Details

Title: The Women at the Pump.

Publisher: Farrar Straus & Giroux, New York

Publication Date: 1978

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition


A Near Fine copy in a Near Fine, price clipped dust jacket. The women at the pump in Hamsun's small Norwegian coastal town are seldom short of talking points especially when it comes to the latest doings of Oliver Andersen and the large family that he and his wife contrive to raise despite growing suspicions that his mysterious accident at sea has deprived him of more than a leg. In Oliver, Hamsun has created one of the great comic characters of literature: a sly, boastful, flaccid rogue who trades shamelessly and indomitably on his misfortune. In his moral squalor he is the symbol of a corrupt and self-seeking society. The novel brims with invention, sardonic humor, and an originality of style and technique representing Hamsun's later work at its best. Bookseller Inventory # 24034
