(price-clipped) [minimal shelfwear, agency stamps (H.N. Swanson, Inc.) on ffep and half-title page, small pieces of clear tape on both pastedowns and at edges of both jacket flaps (from where jacket was formerly affixed to pastedowns); the jacket itself is just lightly soiled]. "A fast-paced, amusing, and lyrical narrative about the life in crisis of Saul Bannerman, middle-aged merchandising director of Beauty*Pore Cosmetic Co. Solly has all the material accoutrements of a reasonably successful man in our culture: a wife, a good job, a home in an upper-class suburb. Then out of nowhere comes the thunderbolt. His wife informs him, as he is contentedly eating a pork chop, that she is having an affair." An uncommon novel, apparently the author's only published book; per the jacket blurb, he had written three plays, "one produced off Off-Broadway," but I've been unable to find any information about them.
