A Near Fine first printing of the first edition in alike dust-jacket with minor edgewear, signed and inscribed by author Thomas Berger on the front endpaper.
The author turns from Indians and private eyes to the exotic adventures of Earl Keese, a pudgy homeowner living on a dead-end road in the country. As the story opens, a younger couple named Harry and Ramona have just moved in next door, between Keese and the corner, posing a threat to his route of escape (from the dust-jacket).
