New York: William Morrow and Company. Near Fine in Very Good dj. 1978. First Edition. Hardcover. 0-688-03196-X . (price-clipped) [good sound copy, minor wear to bottom edge, a couple of tiny faint stains on bottom of text block; jacket shows just a bit of wear along top and bottom edges, a tiny bit of what might be insect-nibbling at bottom right corner of front panel, light soiling; includes original wrap-around band from Brentano's, bearing the legend "autographed for you by the author"]. SIGNED by the author on the ffep (signature only, no inscription). A "stunning tale [in which] an irresistible heroine and a multi-billion-dollar business together face a deadly struggle for survival." The heroine of the novel, "the only child of one of the world's richest and most powerful men," is loaded up with "beauty, intelligence, innocence and youth," all of which serve her well when she takes over the family-owned pharmaceutical company after the death of her father. Literary trash which served as the basis for a trashy movie (dubbed "the worst film of 1979" by Roger Ebert), which wasted the talents of a pretty good cast, including Audrey Hepburn, Ben Gazzara and James Mason. Signed by Author . (Inventory #: 23826)
