Simon & Schuster, New York, 1965. Cloth. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. FIRST PRINTING. The crically revered, bestselling author's classic novel of Texas cowboy transplant Joe Buck and NYC street hustler Ratso Rizzo. Provided the basis for the Academy Award-winning movie of the same name starring Dustin Hoffman and John Voight.
This is James Leo Herlihy's first novel since he made his spectacular debut, with 'All Fall Down,' as the creator of a fresh and wholly modern idiom-racy, wild, tough, alive, inexpressibly moving-through which to explore the humaness of human beings. His extraordinary ability to connect the reader with a life that at first seems altogether alien is focused, in 'Midnight Cowboy,' on the rootless wanderers and hustlers of the dark underside of America from Texas to Time Square."
