Ladies' Man

Richard Price

“I STOOD THERE STARING INTO THE SNAKE PIT”: FIRST EDITION OF LADIES’ MAN, SIGNED BY RICHARD PRICE

PRICE, Richard. Ladies’ Man. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1978. Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $200.

First edition of Price’s electrifying third novel, boldly signed by him.

Begun as an assignment from Penthouse magazine, Richard Price’s third novel, Ladies’ Man, tells the story of a young Manhattan salesman whose broken romance leads him into a descending spiral of singles bars, massage parlors and peep shows, earning Price critical praise as a striking “novel of passion and depth, written with great precision and control” (Washington Post Book World).

A fine signed copy.
