uh oh--this one sounds serious, boys: it's sub-titled "The Story of an Inadequate Man," and the protagonist finds himself caught in the double-barrelled dilemma of bureaucratic red tape from government and Army, *and* a certain--ummm--inability to--ummm, well, par*tici*pate in certain--ummm--*phys*ical activities with the female of the species; we are informed that the author, "probes the small back room of a man's mind, a *man* who faces a problem *all* men must face." (I don't think "probe" is the right word in this particular instance, although I do admit to the better part of my mind being a small back room); cover illustration by Wesley Snyder, and it features a sitting man with his back to a standing woman who couldn't look any more despairing and anguished if she learned he was leaving her for a threesome with both of her grandmothers; spine roll, light edgewear, some spine sunning, faint spotting, tiny dampstain to small portion of top edge of first couple of pages, tanned pages, light general wear;
