New York: Simon and Schuster, 1966. First Edition. Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. Slightest lean, with some vertical creasing to the front flap.

A bright copy of Portis' first book, a poignant and side-splitting comedy about an southerner who journeys from Arkansas to New York City under orders to retrieve a used automobile. Lacking the yellow remainder spray dot that curses nearly every copy of this book that turns up, extremely scarce thus. Basis for the 1970 film starring Glen Campbell, Kim Darby, Joe Namath and Dom DeLuise.
