A very decent copy of the first edition in dust jacket with the added attraction of having a signature leaf from another Walker Percy book pasted onto the front free endpaper of this book. This pasted in signature leaf has the signature of Walker Percy in ink below his name in type. Name of the original owner with date of 1971 written in above the pasted in leaf, but the name was scratched out at some point in the past, leaving only the date readable. Jacket is price clipped. Book is bright, square and tight. First printing stated on copyright page. This is one of Percy's most enjoyable books, being a slightly futuristic look at a Louisiana gone completely nuts. A comic novel in the best Louisiana tradition of bizarre novels such as Confederacy of Dunces. Walker Percy actually helped get that latter book by John Kennedy Toole published.
