(Question marks in parentheses are words that I can't make out).
Story is a contemporary work in the tradition of classic small-town novels such as Peyton Place, and others -- placid, prosperous, and beautiful, surrounded by old family farms, and of course a country club.
Into this picture-postcard world, come Talker and his girlie show. He's the kind of man that most women look at twice. When Marcie Van Buren meets Talker, the sexual time bomb that was always buried under Fulton County begins to tick. Caught in the middle are a cast of characters, and by the end of the novel, the lives of all will have changed--and
Paradise will never again be the same.
---Cover is clean, unmarked, straight spine, 'bump' to bottom corner of back cover. Some light soiling marks to page edges, otherwise interior is clean tightly bound, with no writing, stamps, torn, loose, or creasing of the pages.
Dust jacket retains original flap price of $19.95, has some edge wear, ..no tears or chipping.
NOTE: I have acquired many hardcover books from an estate that were signed/inscribed to a 'Tony Christy'.
They are all from the late 1980's - early 1990's.
It appears that he had a brother connected to the California scene, and acquired the signed books for him.
