"Good as Gold" by Joseph Heller

Simon & Schuster, NY - 1979 first American edition, first printing - 447p, 18cmx15cm - signed by Joseph Heller - condition: very good, with first issue dust jacket, Slight soil to top edge of text block. Jacket spine and edges of panels and flaps toned. Signed by author, Joseph Heller, on colophon page. Kroch's & Brentano's First Edition Circle bookmark laid in.

The novel is well regarded by both fans of Heller and literary critics, being viewed as a return to the gag and verbal play that Heller established in Catch-22 and abandoned in favor of the scathing sarcasm and the darker story in Something Happened.[= Good as Gold functions as a satire on the U.S. government, in a manner similar to the satirization of the army in Catch-22 and the corporation in Something Happened.

Gore Vidal listed Good as Gold as one of his five favorite post-World War II novels, describing it as Heller "at his deadly best, illuminating a hustler on the make in politics".
