Dead Solid Perfect

Front Cover
Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, Mar 24, 2010 - Fiction - 256 pages
2 Reviews
The legendary golf novel, rereleased in a special edition with a new foreword by the author.

Don Imus said it best: "Dan Jenkins is a comic genius." And nowhere is that genius more evident than in Dead Solid Perfect, his uproarious 1974 novel about life on the PGA Tour. To some, Kenny Lee Puckett, the star of Jenkins's ribald saga, is a more important figure in the history of golf than Bobby Jones himself.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
