About this Item

1st printing, 1963. "Wilson, a bored, middle-aged banker, is 'reborn' by the 'company' into a new identity. Adjusting to his new life, he is even less happy than he was before and gradually understands that the price paid for a second chance is too high. A Kafka-like exploration of the depersonalization of modern life. The benign indifference, bureaucratic efficiency and curteous reasonableness of the company are more disturbing than overt malevolence. John Frankenheimer's 1966 film version, with Rock Hudson as the protagonist, was one of the scariest films of that decade." (Barron; Horror, 4-105) Previous owner's name and date on ffep; dj has a couple of tiny closed edge tears. Bookseller Inventory # DC826
