1970 DELIVERANCE James Dickey Book Club Edition Hardcover w/ Dust Jacket
This is a 1970 hardcover book club edition of James Dickey's Deliverance. It was published by Houghton Mifflin and is in very good condition. The dust jacket has a few small tears and some wear on the spine. The boards are cream with green metallic lettering. The binding is tight and the interior pages are structurally sound without any obvious signs of inscriptions, marginalization, or dog eared pages.
In 1972, Deliverance was made into a feature film starring Burt Reynolds and Jon Voight, and the movie was an Academy Award nominee. The book has been banned in some classrooms and libraries across the nation because some passages are considered obscene and pornographic. If you are a collector of banned books, this is one you want on your shelf.
