About this Item

First UK Edition. A VG+ copy in a near VG D/W with medium-sized chips to both the head and tail of the spine and the corners. The Dud Avocado follows the romantic and comedic adventures of a young American who heads overseas to conquer Paris in the late 1950s. Edith Wharton and Henry James wrote about the American girl abroad, but it was Elaine Dundy's Sally Jay Gorce who told us what she was really thinking. Charming, sexy, and hilarious, The Dud Avocado gained instant cult status when it was first published and it remains a timeless portrait of a woman hell-bent on living. One of the best novels about growing up fast. An Uncommon Book. First Book. Bookseller Inventory # 355490712549
