Published London : Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1954.


Location Call No. Status
Physical description 536 pages ; 21 cm
Summary "With a rare blend of naive and sophisticated candor the hero, Augie March, described as a "runner after good things, servant of love, embarker on schemes, recruit of sublime ideas and good-time Charlie" takes the reader with him on his "campaign after a worthwhile fate." A picaresque twentieth-century adventure tale with an amazingly real assortment of characters, a vast number of episodes ranging in location from Chicago to Mexico, to shipwreck at sea, and finally to Europe, and an original, deceptively simple style of writing. Since, with his uninhibited zest for life, Augie embarks upon and describes numerous unconventional ethical and moral enterprises, the book is definitely for mature readers." -- Booklist Review.
