1 Grass, Gunter Cat And Mouse
New York Harcourt 1963 First Edition 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt and red. Octavo. 189pps. First American Edition. There is a previous owner's neatly-penned signature on the ffep. The volume is, otherwise, clean, tight, square, and bright. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a slight touch of edgewear and crinkling at the head of the spine and the rear flap-fold; the original price (3.50) is intact. A very nice copy.

"...Mahlke is set apart from his fellows by an unusual excrescence of cartilage, a huge Adam's apple, sign and symbol of precocious virility, at once embarrassing and stimulating to its bearer. When a classmate sticks a cat on Mahlke's 'mouse,' he unwittingly launches him on a hero's career. In order to compensate for his 'mouse,' Mahlke turns himself into an athlete and ace diver who brings up from a half-submerged ship all kinds of hardware to string around his neck. He becomes 'The Great Mahlke', first to his classmates and later to the nation..."

"...Starusch, a 40-year-old teacher of German and history, undergoes protracted dental treatment in an office where TV is used to distract the patients. Under local anesthesia, the patient projects onto the screen his past and present with the fluidity and visual quality of the movies. A satirical portrait of social confusions..."
