Book cover picture of Purdy, James. CABOT WRIGHT BEGINS. New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, (1964.)
First printing. A novel within a novel, this is the story of a Chicago car salesman who is "spurred on by an ambitious wife to write a documentary novel about the celebrated American hero-rapist, Cabot Wright." A merciless but often very funny criticism of modern society, including plagiarism, values, sexual mores, the publishing industry and more, as timely today as when it was written. 228 pp. Fine in very good dust jacket (price-clipped, short closed tear to lower edge of back cover.) .
