Jack in the Box by William Kotzwinkle
FIRST EDITION / FIRST PRINTING  G.P. PUTNAM'S SONS
Hardcover with dust jacket in excellent condition.
Dust jacket shows some shelf wear, a few tiny edge tears and some tanning; price clipped off front panel.
Book itself looks and reads like new w/ a hint of tanning to cloth.
A witty and nostalgic novel that traces Jack Twiller's zany transition from a 1940s comic-book identity to a typical American youth of the Fabulous Fifties, which is to say completely warped.
