[solid copy, soiling to top page edges and endpapers, minor shelfwear; jacket shows some wear along top/bottom edges and along spine, a few small closed tears, minor paper loss at spine ends (no text affected), short diagonal tear at top corner of front panel]. The author's first novel, a young man's tale of life in New York, "about the sort of people I know and am," per the writer. "Young people who have ideas about any number of things, ideas that don't fit into any grand scheme. If there is anything they all agree on, it is that being together and talkilng together and being fond of each other is a very good thing, perhaps the only thing in the world." Elsewhere he states that the book " is not a slice of life, nor a hard-boiled novel, nor is it about a lost generation. [In fact, it seems to be a bit of all three.] It is a story about some people who knew each other."
