Arguably the best novel about the PGA tour, certainly the funniest. Signed boldly on the front free endpaper. The book is tightly bound and free of names other than the author. The dustjacket is not price-clipped and is still bright, even in the white portions. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: A moderately successful professional golfer attempts to handle the pressures of being a front-runner in a championship tournament
From the Back Cover:
"Dan Jenkins is a comic genius."
Praise for Dead Solid Perfect:
"This is vintage Jenkins--profane, outrageous, and sharp-eyed in its parody of the overblown world of big-time golf. It is also distinguished by a climactic golf match that may be the funniest scene he's ever written."
"Dan Jenkins is the nearest thing to Ring Lardner this generation has ever seen. No one has captured the essential lunacy of the twentieth-century sports (and TV) scene as accurately and hilariously as this."
--Los Angeles Times
"Jenkins is hilarious, providing more laughs per page than any other writer in the 'bidness.'"
