Pp (10),[1]-498,(4). 8vo, black cloth spine, black paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. “With the publication of Open Heart, internationally acclaimed Israeli novelist A. B. Yehoshua has written a psychological tour de force that takes as its subject nothing less than love and the nature of man's soul. From the opening lines of this first-person narrative, the reader is propelled into the mind of Dr. Benjamin Rubin, an ambitious young internist, who is jockeying for position with the hospital's top surgeons. But it isn't until Benjy learns that his internship has been terminated, and that he has been selected to accompany the hospital administrator and his wife to India to retrieve their ailing daughter, that Yehoshua sets his hero on a journey of self-discovery. This journey brings the supremely rational, coolheaded physician to surrender all his deeplyheld beliefs when his experience in India awakens an erotic passion that d ares to destroy his tidy world as he pursues the illicit love of the administrator's wife.” - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. Signed without inscription by the author. 35.00
