Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
New York: Delta, (1988.). First edition - Not only is this the ARC for Barrett's first novel, it is the first book to be published as a trade paperback original by the revised Delta Fiction imprint (in the 60's they published such writers as Vonnegut and Brautigan.) The advance issue of this title is printed on noticeably better paper stock than the trade edition and, as such, it is much less prone to browning.
Condition: Very good- in glossy illustrated wrappers (some rubbing and edgewear to the covers, but a tight copy with no creases on the spine.)
