New York: Simon and Schuster, 1966. First Edition. 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. Basis for the 1970 film starring Glen Campbell, Kim Darby, Joe Namath and Dom DeLuise. An exceptional copy.

Fine and unread in an about Fine dust jacket. Lacking the yellow remainder spray dot that curses nearly every copy of this book, extremely scarce thus.
