[minimal shelfwear to book, minor soiling to bottom edges of boards; jacket scuffed and lightly soiled, slight fading to spine, short diagonal corner-creases in front flap]. Novel about a 17-year-old who spends his summer writing a letter to his unborn grandson, "a 'map' of what it was like to be that age a hundred years ago." The author is described in the jacket blurb as having "traveled a lot, tripped a lot, and written a lot" (part of said tripping having occurred when he was "a paid volunteer for early experiments with hallucinogens," supposedly having last taken LSD in 1954). For this novel, he "has drawn on his vast store of knowledge of American Freakdom."
