New York: Farrar, Straus & Cudahy, (1959.) Hardcover First Edition
First printing. A comic novel about the "short long life" of its young hero - and his bizarre adventures which involve him with an astrologer, an undertaker, a midget painter, a jazz queen, an ex-burglar and others. Ex-library, but a very clean attractive copy with few markings (just a "withdrawn" stamp and the light residue from a pocket on the endpaper) in a near fine, but price-clipped dj. .
