"A short novel of major scope and impact, Goodbye, Columus captures the exuberance and bewilderment of youth Americans who find that beyond love-making they must still grope for love. It is the story Brenda Patimkin, who has all a man could want (and maybe a little more), and of a young man on his way up, who finds among the Patimkins a world so determinedly opulent it's funny - and so funny it hurts." - inside dust jacket.
