[moderately shelfworn, a decent enough copy but unfortunately blemished by a brown stain (looks like a tea-spill) affecting the top edge and fore-edge of about a 12-page section in the middle of the book, and severely marking the top section of one of those pages; jacket lightly soiled, with chipping and a bit of paper loss at both ends of spine Comic novel (rather scarce in hardcover) about a guy with a remarkable string of bad luck, who gets an opportunity to take revenge for ALL of it when he catches a burglar in the act of trying to rob him for a third time. The author adapted it for a play, which tanked on Broadway (16 performances) in early 1975 -- but it couldn't have hurt too badly for too long, because the following year came "A Chorus Line" and well, there you go. Against the better judgment of everybody but Steve Guttenberg (who produced, co-wrote, directed AND starred in it), it was subsequently adapted for a 2002 film, which suffered approximately the same fate as the original production of the play. There is no truth to the rumor that Guttenberg's agent then sent him a note reading "P.S. your career is dead."
