The Unbearable Bassington


No slipcase. The Unbearable Bassington centers on Francesca Bassington, a woman obsessed with protecting her possessions, and her son Comus, a wise-cracking, irresponsible, and shallow young man who simultaneously charms and offends everyone with whom he comes in contact. One discard stamp and pencil markings on the copyright page, no other markings, light soil. 146 pages, 6 x 9.
