New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1952.

First edition of Frederick Buechner’s second novel. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, with a full page inscription by the author on the front free endpaper, “This was the most insincere of all of my books. Following hard on the heels of my most successful. I wrote a good deal of it in the small village of Great Milton, near Oxford, where I would get so cold that I would have to get into bed to write, and then I’d fall asleep instead. With all best wishes to Patrick, Christopher, Celia, and Greg Ross. -Frederick Buechner.” Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Photograph by Elliott Erwitt.

As in A Long Day's Dying, Frederick Buechner's first brilliant novel, the plot of The Seasons' Difference is less important than the characters, the atmosphere, and the complexity of the writing. The story tells of the effects of one man's sudden conviction that he has had a supernatural visitation and his attempt to to make his close friends and their small children realize that vision with him a second time.
