Product description

Title: Don Quixote USA

Author: Richard Powell

In these pages you will meet Arthur Peabody Goodpasture, a young American who joins the Peace Corps and gets involved in a revolution in the Republic of San Marco in the Carribean. Fortunately there is no Republic of San MArco; if one existed, it might sever relations with the outside world as a result of this book. Arthur Peabody Goodpasture is also fictional. There is, however, a real United States of America. But you may find that the author has a different idea of the reality of America than you have. 

The book has dark blue boards and gilt lettering to the spine.

The upper page edges have tanning and the outer and lower page edges have foxing.

The upper edge of the front of the dust jacket has wear.

The lower edge of the spine of the dust jacket has heavy wear and tear and the upper edge of the spine of the dust jacket has heavy wear and tear.

The lower edge of the rear of the dust jacket has wear and stains and the upper edge of the dust jacket has wear.

The rear inner sleeve of the dust jacket has creasing.

The front inner sleeve of the dust jacket has stains and mild wear and tear along the upper edge.

There is a pencil name mark on the front endpages.
