This is the story of Joseph Heller's struggle against Guillain-Barre syndrome.The book is in Very Near Fine condition and appears to have never been read. The textblock is clean and the binding is tight. The front lower corner of the front board is slightly bumped with a much smaller corresponding bump to the outer right corner of the rear board. The dustjacket is also Near Fine with the slightest hint of a crease to the extreme top of the front inner flap. It is virtually unnoticeable. The dustjacket is not price-clipped. Joseph Heller, author of Catch-22, Something Happenned, Good as Gold, and many other fine works has signed this book directly on the title page. Laid-in is the announcement of the signing at the Harvard Book Store where this book was autographed. Guillain-Barrer syndrome is a debilitating, sometimes fatal condition that can leave it's victims paralyzed from head to toe. This book is an inspiring, hilarious memoir of calamitous illness and the rocky road to recuperation. It is as great hearted as anything that this deceased author ever wrote.We are happy to send pictures on request.
