THE GREAT PRETENDER.
New York: Atheneum, 1986. SIGNED Hardcover First Edition
First printing. The author's first novel, set in the 1960's when the young were licensed to do their own thing - only Ben's own thing is browsing in second hand bookshops - well, getting laid, too. Geoffrey Woolf described this a "a great title for a great novel. It has virtues aplenty: blazing honesty, wit, novelty, pitch-perfect recall of suburban Chicago, Harvard, Oxford.. it is devilishly funny.." SIGNED on title page, and uncommon thus. Near fine in near fine dust jacket. .ISBN # 0-689-11800-7
