Description:

Very fine first edition in fine priced($15.00) jacket. Top has fine red stain and lettering is gilded. At the center of the story is JR a enterprising 6th grader in torn sneakers, bred on the challenge of " free enterprise" and fired by heady mail order promises of " success" . His teachers would rather be elsewhere, his principal doubles as a bank president, his Long island classroom mirrors the world he sees around him a world of public relations and private betrayals where everything and everyone wears a price tag, a world of " deals" where honesty is no substitute for experience, and the letter of the law flouts its spirit at every turn, Authors wonderful second novel following the highly praised debut novel, The Recognitions. This very fine collectible is Mylar protected. Bookseller Inventory #
