Hardcover with dust jacket in very good condition. Dust jacket has visible shelf wear, two small sealed tears and some creasing. Book itself looks and reads like new.
Adapted from the novel by James Purdy. Introduced simply as the boy on the bench, the titular character of Malcolm is a Candide-like figure who is picked up by the most famous astrologer of his period and introduced to a series of increasingly absurd characters and bizarre situations in the most prodigiously funny book to streak across these heavy-hanging times.
