DUNDY, Elaine. The Dud Avocado or The Vie Amoureuse of Sally Jay in Paris.
(London): Gollancz, 1958. First edition. Octavo. 272 pages. The author’s first novel, a superb tale that follows the romantic and comedic adventures of a young American who heads overseas to conquer Paris in the late 1950s. The novel gained instant cult status when it was first published and it remains a timeless portrait of a woman hell-bent on living. A very good copy, small neat pervious owner’s name and date (1958) on front endpaper, contemporary newspaper clipping laid-in, in a very good dust jacket.
