First edition. A near fine copy in a good dust jacket with two closed tears and some internal staining (better than it sounds; still looks nice in mylar). Block's uproarious and infamous cult novel. His jacket credit reads: "Lawrence Block, shown on the back jacket pretending to read a filthy book to his two innocent children, has written several novels under various aliases, low ceilings and threats of exposure. He divides his time between a New York apartment and a farm in New Jersey, and his activities in both places are too nefarious to contemplate. However, any resemblance between Lawrence Block, author, and Laurence Clarke, hero of RONALD RABBIT IS A DIRTY OLD MAN, is entirely."
