2 Barth, John THE END OF THE ROAD
Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1958. B000E321XW First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Whisper of wear at the shelf edges, the expected mild age-toning to the pages, a few tiny dots of stain to rear pastedown, thus nearly fine; in a near fine, lightly worn dust jacket that shows some faint lines of stain to rear panel, mild age-toning. 
In Barth's second novel, young Jake Horner, his mind an increasingly paralyzing cobweb of dark thoughts, turns for help to an extraordinary doctor, part saint, part evil-genius, a weird combination of faith-healer, magician, and devil.
