WALLACH, Ira. Muscle Beach.

(Boston, MA): Little, Brown and Company, 1959. First edition. 236 pages. A sexual farce set amongst 60’s Southern California culture (swimming pools, bodybuilding, beach life, fantastic real estate, metaphysical gurus, etc.). The novel formed the basis for the Alexander Mackendrick directed film Don’t Make Waves that starred Tony Curtis, Claudia Cardinale, Dave Draper and Sharon Tate. A very good copy in dust jacket. Jacket with some wear and chipping to edges.
