[light shelfwear to book, one-time owner's name and address in pencil on ffep; jacket heavily worn at edges, rather crudely repaired and reinforced with brown tape]. Somewhat hard-boiled story, set in Denver, of an average Joe (er, Charlie) -- "one of those human molecules who contribute to the placing of a decimal point in the Kinsey Report" -- who has a fling with his wife's 17-year-old sister, thus setting foot "down the teeming road to ultimate horror." Can you say Lo-lee-ta?
