Paperback. Condition: Good+/Very Good-. 1958. Ballantine. 1st Edition.
A rising star in Britain, and a Ballantine "First" - with the recent publication of his first novel, DEADLY IMAGE, and now TOMORROW'S GIFT, the first volume of his collected short stories, seven of which are completely original in this country.
Cooper belongs to that school of writing which is primarily imaginative - he likes to wander far in space, is fascinated by the riddle of time; and in many of these stories he writes provocatively stimulating variations in answer to a challenge as yet unsolved by man. But Mr. Cooper has the good writer's ability to translate the overall largeness of his themes into strongly personal terms. Moreover, in the widely varying scope provided by this group of stories, he displays a delightful talent for dry, understated humor, and a keen awareness of human values.
Keep your eye on Mr. Cooper.
