The fine scenery, the lovely climate, the varied vegetation, the quaint customs of the different races, their religious pageantry, combine to form a picture which those who have enjoyed are unlikely to forget” [author’s preface]. A well-preserved copy.

A near fine copy only very lightly mellowed by time. FIRST EDITION of Berryman's brilliant novel about, in his own words, "the disease called 'alcoholism."

Berryman began writing it in 1970 and had completed all but the final section of the first draft when he died in January of 1972. "Even unfinished, even without benefit of the intensive revisions and improvements he applied to all his work, it is so powerful that it had to be published." - Publisher. RECOVERY is powerful, moving and a unique testament to courage and strength.
