Item #28571 Panama: A Novel. Thomas McGuane.

Panama: A Novel.

New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1978. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Chester Pomeroy the main character in this novel is a washed-up rock star turned casualty of illicit substances and kamikaze passion. As he haunts Key West, pestering family, threatening a potential in-law with a .38, and attempting to crucify himself on his ex's door out of sheer lovesickness, Chester emerges as the pure archetype of the McGuane hero. Out of his struggle to rejoin the human race -- and the imminent possibility that he may die trying -- McGuane has fashioned a harrowing and hilarious novel of alligators, macadam, the sea, sticky sex, laughter, and sudden death.
