Earliest book club edition. A hard to find hardcover copy of Gould's highly praised first novel. One review described it as 'combining revenge, growing up, lonely superman and abuse-of-power motifs centered on a classic science-fiction theme: teleportation. An exceptionally well-organized debut, with thoughtful ideas, a controlled plot, and characters - particularly the young protagonist - portrayed with insight and compassion.' Basis - rather loosely (the book is much better) - for the film of the same name. 344 pp. Near fine in a near fine dustjacket (corners very slightly bumped.) Although it was reissued in conjunction with the movie release, the original 1992 hardcover editions are uncommon in any edition. Dust jacket by Romas. Code of 02780 on back cover of dj, bound in charcoal gray boards with a black spine, silver lettering. .ISBN # 0-312-85272x
