[very presentable book, with light shelfwear and faint soiling to bottom edge, slight bumping to bottom corners, minor dust-soiling to top edge; jacket shows a bit of wear at corners, small closed tear at top of front panel]. The playwright and (more recently) thriller writer's scarce first novel, "the story of Charlie Minor, of what he is and what he wants to be and of how he manages to become almost a hero. Charlie is a dreamer, a lover, a veteran, an ex-Communist, a diligent men' s room entrepreneur-employee of the New York City Parks Department, a faithful fan of the late late movie, and, by his own admission, a model citizen. His friends include a voluptuous black ladies' room co-worker, a Good Humor man, a graffiti scholar, an Irish cop, an ex-sweetheart with a job in the library, an FBI agent who indulges in blackmail and other unorthodox activities, and two revolutionaries who each want Charlie to join them in their quite different schemes for rebuilding society."
