[ex-library, minimally marked as such (just a "discard" stamp on the rear fep) but with other traces, notably large glue stains on both pastedowns (and bleeding through both jacket flaps), the single letter "F" on the ffep, and a tiny scar on the rear fep (from removal of some sort of label, I presume); the jacket itself, aside from the aforementioned glue stains, is quite presentable, with just some minor soiling, one small tear at top of rear panel, one tiny tear at top of front panel]. "The intensely human story of [this book] takes place in Richmond Hill, Queens, New York, during a four-month span of the summer and fall of 1977. Joseph Lazaro, at twenty-seven, is these things: Vietnam vet and husband, meter reader for Brooklyn/Queens Water Resources and resident of Richmond Hill, the neighborhood in which he was born and raised. This brilliant first novel is the story of Joe's striving for consciousness, of his search for himself and for salvation from a life of futility."
