Edition: First printing.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2003. dj.

A handful of O'Hara's books have survived - but after getting perhaps more attention than he deserved during his live, maybe he is not getting enough now. Illustrated with photographs, notes, bibliography, index. Review copy with Wolff's photo laid in. xxii, 373 pp. ISBN: 0-679427716.
Condition: Very near fine in a near fine dustjacket (ends of spine somewhat pushed, but otherwise a very tight and clean copy)
