[light shelfwear, tiny stain on bottom edge of text block, one-time owner's name printed at top of front endpaper (see notes); the jacket is edgeworn and lightly soiled, with a couple of small internal tape-repairs, heavy wrinkling/creasing to lower one inch of the spine panel]. A "deliciously candid [or, if you prefer, 'gay and impudent'] memoir" by the youngest of the Gabor sisters, published fairly early in her career (she was just 35), and especially so considering that her greatest fame, as co-star of the great TV sitcom "Green Acres," was more than a decade in the future. Two notes: (1) the previous owner's name, printed in a rather awkward hand at the top of the front endpaper, was "Dave Koch"; could this possibly have been the David Koch who went on to become one of America's richest men and a major funder of right-wing political causes? (He would have been fourteen when this book was published.) And (2) might this possibly be the only dust jacket on record to have utilized the combined talents of Edward Gorey and Philippe Halsman?
