New York: Delacorte Press. Near Fine in Very Good+ dj. (c.1984). First Edition. Hardcover. 0-385-29272-4 . [nice tight clean book, faint traces of shelfwear; jacket similarly nice, with just a bit of scuffing to the spine, minor creasing at spine ends]. The author's first novel, the story of a young man searching for his missing sister, set against the background of the Southern California beach/surfing scene. Something of a cult classic (among surfers who read, I guess), and rather impressively jacket-blurbed by Elmore Leonard and Robert Stone, the latter ranking it with "the best of Raymond Chandler and James Crumley." . (Inventory #: 20255)
