She manages to meet him, bursting out of her lonely shell--and into the attentive gaze of the intangible man who becomes all too real....

Book Description Knopf, 1970, 1970. 1st edition NF/VG (the book has a handwritten R on the front free endpaper -- common with this title -- and a small faint spot on the yellow topstain; the dj is price- clipped and has a short closed tear at the top of the back panel, next to the spine; overall, a quite presentable copy of Tyler's hard to find third novel).
