1 Buchanan, Cynthia Maiden
New York William Morrow & Co. 1972 044035174X / 9780440351740 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dj Illustrated by (dj) Marcia McGinniss Shortt 
[nice tight clean copy, mild shelfwear; jacket slightly dog-eared at top of spine, otherwise clean with faint surface wear, short diagonal crease at bottom of front flap]. The author's first (and possibly only) novel, "the story of an innocent, a monstrous romantic, an anachronism of a heroine up against the metaphor of Southern California. Fortune Dundy is a free spirit among fools. What happens to her in this book is relentless, urgent, and above all, funny -- but behind the comedy lurks the absurdity of life." (Well, doesn't it always?) The book was well-reviewed upon its initial publication (the movie rights were reportedly sold to Columbia Pictures, and it was optioned at one point by Lily Tomlin, although no movie ever resulted); reprinted in 1999, it was called "a penetrating and original commentary on the deadly life of the American dream."
