(price-clipped) [nice clean tight copy, faint wear to spine ends; rear jacket panel scuffed and edgeworn]. Not quite a "novel" (though the jacket copy calls it such), this is rather a series of eight interconnected stories depicting the narrator's coming- of-age in Florida in the 1950's. Whatever ... it's an absolutely terrific book, odd and off-center and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. One of the stories deals with a personal encounter, more or less, with Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. The author's first work of fiction; she has published two additional novels to date, which I can also highly recommend: "In Troubled Waters" and "Taken In."
