1 Bourjaily, Vance The Violated
New York The Dial Press 1958 First Edition 
Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Fully bound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in white. 599pps. Mild bumping to the spine-ends and rubbing to the boards. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The text is immaculate; no reading wear or previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has two moderate chips -- one at the upper front tip and the other at the top of the front panel; also, light edgewear and faint dustspotting to the white rear panel. The original price is intact. An excellent copy in a nice dustjacket.

"...Bourjaily has written an unsparing portrait of the sexual, moral and intellectual lives of four people of his generation, from their beginnings in the 1920's, through the years of the Great Depression and the Second World War, to their present in the 1950's.
The Violated revolves around these four, but in its thirty-year span it encompasses half a hundred people who live and breathe and sometimes die in the pages of this novel -- people who are 'the violated' by their 'inability to communicate, to love, to comprehend, to create -- violated by neurotic commitments to preposterous goals or, more tragically, to no goals at all'..."
