Americans at home, a novel

Palisades: First Person, 1976. Paperback. 124p., first book publication, 8 x 6 inch plain printed wraps with a decorated dj, this sur-wrapper a little nipped at head and tail. Inscribed and signed by Elevitch on the half title.

Gotta be the only avant garde housing market novel extant, or at least the only one set in Arizona. Plenty of well-crafted prose and might-get-caught sex in cars and in model homes on open-house days-- very American. The author blurbs his book himself: "I began this book in Rome in the mid fities.. about a young, detached man who suddenly takes over public relations for a mass housing firm in Arizona." Elevitch must have worked this little slice of life for twenty years.
