The Graduate
New York: New American Library, 1963. First edition. Fine/Fine. A lovely copy of the book, Fine and unread with a small offset on the front endpaper from an old price sticker. In a very nearly Fine dust jacket that is without chips or tears, but that has a faint stain on the rear panel. Despite the defects a copy that is superior to everything else currently on the market. The 1963 novel by Charles Webb that follows emotionally lost college graduate Benjamin Braddock and his eventual affair with Mrs. Robinson. The book was written shortly after the writer himself had graduated Williams College. It was adapted into the classic 1967 film directed by Mike Nichols, starring Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, and Katherine Ross. Nichols would win an Academy Award for Best Director, while Hoffman, Bancroft and Ross would all earn performance nominations. Interestingly enough, Webb was uncomfortable with the publicity and success of the movie and did not get any royalties from it. "The Graduate" was selected for preservation in the US Natural Film Registry in 1996. "arresting in its brilliant use of dialogue and likely to arouse talk and controversy." (Contemporary New York Times review). Fine in Fine dust jacket.
