Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of wear to extremities. The binding leans very slightly but remains perfectly secure; text clean. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 252pp. Reprint Edition. The First Edition was published in 1966. Trade Paperback. Spurned by his wife at home and by superiors at work, a young man sits in his cramped San Francisco apartment during the turbulent 1960s and channels everything around him into a diary that is a perfect record of a world going to pieces. Spurned by his wife at home and by superiors at work, a young man sits in his cramped San Francisco apartment during the turbulent 1960s and channels everything around him into a diary that is a perfect record of a world going to hell. This is the diary of a rapist. It is also an exploration of the degenerating thought patterns of this man's mind. The first thing one notices about this work is the lack of abject sexuality...there are no long erotic dream sequences, no detailed review of violent acts, no endless explorations into kinky sex. Our main character (I refuse to use the term "anti-hero") thinks of himself as a witty bon vivant who should have the power to mesmerize a certain woman. You discover midway that at some point he abused this woman and is now taunting her. Then he begins to unravel and slowly descends into madness that we view through his increasingly obscure diary entries. Fascinating read.
