New York: Ballantine Books, (1957). B0006AV274 First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Light crease to spine, a hint of wear, else fine, in blue cloth with silver lettering and rules; in an age-toned, price-clipped, near fine illustrated dust jacket that shows some minor nicking, a hint of soiling. Jacket by J. Zabinsky.
"A magnificent job...a gentle, rueful, humorous, reflective book."--Bentz Plageman. Comic coming-of-age tale in a scarce Ballantine hardcover. Contrary to Ballantine's practice at the time, no simultaneous paperback was issued.
