BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS; OR, GOODBYE BLUE MONDAY! [New York]: Delacorte Press / Seymour Lawrence, . Octavo, cloth. First edition. Vonnegut's major bestseller, and his first novel after rising to literary prominence with SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE. Fun, but perhaps his messiest novel, clunky, episodic, and sprinkled with felt-tip pen illustrations by the author. Also features the return of Kilgore Trout, Vonnegut's SF writer alter ego. Pieratt, Huffman-klinkowitz, and Klinkowitz AK1. Slight spine lean, else a fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket (priced $7.95 on front flap) with mild sunning to spine panel and 6 mm closed tear at upper edge of front panel. (#159625).
