Bech by John Updike [FIRST PAPERBACK PRINTING / 1971]
FIRST PAPERBACK PRINTING  FAWCETT CREST
Like new and unread w/ some trace shelf wear and a chipped corner.
Henry Bech is a Jewish American writer in his early forties, struggling for fame, no Norman Mailer, or Philip Roth, or Saul Bellow, he. We see him on his travels to Russia, to Bulgaria, and in the beds of his various mistresses. This is a funny, witty book about the world of writers and the quest for success.
