Garden City NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc.. Fine in Very Good+ dj. 1978. First Edition. Hardcover. 0385133162 . [nice tight clean book, with no discernible wear; jacket nice and bright, the only blemish being one tiny closed tear and associated short diagonal crease at top of front panel]. This very funny author's very funny debut novel, "a poignant, comic look at the high-pressure world of college football, as seen through the eyes of a small-town football hero from Texas who wants to make it to the big time." Cronley (1943-2017), a longtime Tulsa newspaper columnist, was elected to the Oklahoma Writers Hall of Fame in 2002; a number of his later novels (although not this one) were adapted for movies. .
