1 Fiedler, Leslie A. Back to China
New York Stein and Day (c.1965) NO First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dj Illustrated by (dj design) Owl Studio 
[good solid copy, moderate shelfwear to bottom edge and top of spine, light soiling to top edge; jacket shows mild wear at edges/corners, a couple of ragged closed tears at top of rear panel near spine]. "This is the story of Professor Baro Finklestone and his manifold disguises: handball player, boy revolutionary, avenging Marine, imaginary Japanese, adopted Indian, pacifist, and, as ever, a jerk, as he pursues a crucifixion that turns into a pratfall. Baro Finklestone wants to remain absolutely innocent even in middle age. He is haunted by the need to make personal amends for a vast range of evil, for Hiroshima, for instance, and for the oppression of the American Indian. His attempt to atone for the guilt of Hiroshima leads him to a method so absurd that it is bound to bring him the Happy Ending he neither desired nor deserved. He makes victims of others and of himself a clown."
