(price-clipped) [nice copy, very minor soiling to page edges, light fading/bumping at top of spine; jacket a bit faded at spine, very shallow chipping at top of spine (no text affected), faint soiling/scuffing]. "A novel of modern New York with the O. Henry touch, [this book] tells of a young Congregationalist clergyman, who, increasingly conscious of the spiritual inadequacy for him of formal religion, leaves his small-town church and seeks in the anonymity of New York the reason for his being. He lives in an obscure rooming house, devoting himself selflessly to the logders he finds there, a group of strange folk blindly concerned with their own special problems and wholly unaware of relationships which bind them to each other and to a large human society." (What, New Yorkers? Obviously, this is fiction.)
