FIRST EDITION.. Signed by the author on the title-page. "In these two deeply absorbing, powerful novellas, Smiley has fashioned a meditation on the thesis and antithesis of control: in Good Will, man's carefully constructed life is destroyed by his obsession for control; in Ordinary Love, a family is devastated by a woman's passionate relinquishing of it" (the publisher).
