Bumarap: The Story of a Male Virgin

Novel by Roth, an American publisher and writer known for published banned works in the 1920s-1960, including Ulysses, Lady Chatterley's Lover, Fanny Hill and many others. From the jacket: "This is the saga of a semi-literate Italian who, in the pursuit of that will-o-the-wisp of modernism, personal equality under law, becomes involved in a series of incidents that transform the garish New York landscape into a storied fairyland." Binding is crisp and tight, covers show some faint discoloration. Jacket shows edgewear and some soil, rubbing. 256 pages, 5.5 x 8 inches.
