New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, 1962. First edition. A lovely copy of the book. Just about Fine, with a few spots to the lower edge of the closed text block and a touch of sunning to the top-stain. In a Near Fine jacket with only trivial wear and discoloration to the jacket.

"In this 1962 novel, Kerouac's alter ego Jack Duluoz, overwhelmed by success and excess, gravitates back and forth between wild binges in San Francisco and an isolated cabin on the California coast where he attempts to renew his spirit and clear his head of madness and alcohol. Only nature seems to restore in him a sense of balance" (Saroyan).
Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. (Item #4707)
