[nice clean copy, minor wear to base of spine; jacket slightly age-toned at spine, no other significant wear]. Novel about "the twenty-four hours in the life of a young man just before he goes into military service," even though he's passionately against war and does intend to do any killing: "he wants only to look in the face of the man who will try to kill him, and love that man if he can." Basis for the 1970 film of the same name, directed by David Miller and starring a young Michael Douglas in his first starring role, with Arthur Kennedy and Teresa Wright as his uncomprehending and unsympathetic parents.
