About this title


After he accidentally witnesses an extraordinary event, isolated, down-at-the-heels Amos, a man waiting to die, is pitted against sexy, unscrupulous nurse Daisy Dawes in an unlikely but deadly struggle

From the Publisher:

West's Amos is an imposing landscape of human drama and emotion--heart-rending, timeless, hilarious, stunning, joyful--an incredible story, a book that grips readers early and late, young and old, a novel they don't want to end...a page-turner with heart, a joy to read, a treasure to cherish.

Amos has been out of print for close to fourteen years and yet it has not been forgotten. We have received countless requests for the novel over the years, and now we are extremely pleased to bring out this gorgeous trade paperback edition of the enduring novel. The story was produced as a CBS Movie of the Week featuring Kirk Douglas as Amos with Elizabeth Montgomery as Daisy Daws. Supporting actors included Dorothy McGuire, Pat Morita, Ray Ralston and Fred Coffin. The movie received four Emmy nominations, one for story. The book and film sparked a national controversy over the treatment of the aged in America.
