Some creasing of head & tail of DJ spine ; A bright, solid book, DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 320 pages; "...explore the American heartland of the late 1930s--a dull, desolate place reeling from the after-effects of the Depression and Prohibition while facing down World War II. Protagonist Jack McGreary is young man with more than his share of burdens to bear. His mom is dead, his dad is nuts, his girlfriend is apathetic and his hometown of Paradise Flats is one big, go-nowhere dustbowl of despair and poverty. So when dapper grifters Virgil and Miss Rose blow into town, scamming the local yokels with sleight-of-hand tricks and other deceits--Jack sees them as his ticket out. But what begins as a thrilling escape from the tedium of small-town life soon morphs into something more sinister."
