About This Item

New York, New York, U. S. A.: E P Dutton. Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 1994. First Edition. Hardcover. At forty-two, Jerome Corcoran - "Corky" to his friends and associates - is by all appearances a successful real estate developer and broker, a city councilman with a promising future in local politics, a genuine ladies' man, and all-around great guy. His big house, fifteen-hundred-dollar suits, and the ridiculously large tips he hands out all over town reassure him that he's put plenty of distance between himself and the family history (which includes a murdered father and raving mad mother) he'd rather forget. Corky may think that his inauspicious beginnings on Irish Hill, one of Union City's shabbier neighborhoods, are now far behind him, but over the course of Memorial Day Weekend 1992, that precious illusion, along with several others, will be completely shattered. The jacket has two very small areas at the front joint that appear to have been pinched; the spots show against the black jacket. 608 pages, price not clipped; remaindered. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. .
