Synopsis: NY 1989 first edition. Knopf. Hardcover octavo. Near Fine (clean, no marks, no faults) in VG++ dj (no tears, no chips, price not clipped but slight toning and light rubbing.

From Publishers Weekly: Christopher doesn't condescend to the tawdry lives he writes about in this offbeat, occasionally hilarious first collection of stories. A burnt-out machinist and his bored nephew steal Day-Glo plastic flamingos, tombstones and lawn ornaments, but their scheme goes awry with lethal results. A philandering "security guard" in a strip-joint juggles his wife and the performer with whom he's obsessed. An 83- year-old man watching a girlie peep-show "can't get no satisfaction." In a bizarre love triangle, a woman who works in a poultry plant determining the sex of chickens shoots an arrow at her "most time drunk . . . best friend," who earlier kidnapped the child of the woman he desperately wants to marry. Other stories deal with a gun moll, a small-town bachelor lawyer, a farmer quilled by a porcupine, Vietnam war buddies, fathers and sons. Some of these 15 tales are too self-consciously literary, but the ones that work open new vistas to the reader.
