[light wear at spine extremities, spine moderately turned; jacket has small tears at several corners, a bit of wear along top edge, minor paper loss at top of spine, one small chip at bottom of rear panel]. Rollicking (it sez here) tale of a couple who buy a motel in the California desert, with visions of "a hostelry for weary travelers and a dream of freedom in the country. Months later (wiser by years) they were forced to admit the facts: they had invested in a playground for a practical joker, an amorous old maid, and other transient eccentrics, while the dictates of business, running far into the night, prevented even the semblance of a dream."
