New York: Knopf, 1974. First edition. Hardcover. It's not anybody who could write a bawdy, often hilarious, totally unsentimental novel about a legless deaf-mute who earns his keep by doing one-finger stands on arms the size of your average giant's thighs. Marvin Molar lives in a gym with Al -- a former stunt man who did tricks like having a car run over his body -- an old punchdrunk Negro fighter named Peter and an equally punchy young one named Leroy -- and finally, Hester, a "normal" whose revolving thighs drive Marvin absolutely insane. She is the "Gypsy's Curse." 208pp. Some slight mottling to the spine, else a fine, unread copy in a fine, bright dust jacket with virtually no spine-sunning. Item #13450
