The Ugly American - Eugene Burdick and William Lederer
"It's like deja vu all over again," - Yogi Berra. Yep, and here we are again. This 1958 political novel was a national/international bestseller, something of a Cold War classic, the origin of the favorite tourist phrase, and a book my father would have read and kept on his shelf, referencing it constantly while nobody knew what the hell he was talking about. This is a nice paperback copy.
