This is an auction for MEMOIRS OF AN INVISIBLE MAN by H F Saint.

This is a wonderful book.
- DH

“In Saint's heralded novel, a clash between a scientist and an anti-nuclear demonstrator catalyses an explosion that renders Nick Halloway invisible. Realizing that he will become a caged guinea pig if he surrenders to federal intelligence agents, Nick makes a run for freedom. Saint has hit on a wonderful narrative device: insert one fantastic premise into the life of a Yuppie, but keep the rest of his world functional. Nick displays the distinct sensibilities of a fugitive and a Wall Street smart guy as he invisibly fends for himself in the East Side of Manhattan. Unerringly incorporating both humour and poignancy, with dialogue that rings absolutely true and suspense sustained at high pitch throughout, this supple fantasy attends so cleverly to plausible elements that it entertains from beginning to end."
- Publishers Weekly (US)

"When a scientific experiment goes awry, a securities analyst suddenly finds himself rendered invisible and wanted by the CIA for "medical study." To avoid becoming a laboratory animal, he goes on the lam, hiding in plain sight among the throngs of New York City, conducting his financial affairs by telephone, and eventually moving in with a woman who believes him to be a ghost. The CIA agents, always just one step behind, are deliciously funny Keystone Kops, ridiculous in their attempts to capture a non-entity. This delightful novel updates a common childhood fantasy with the excitement of a spy story and a hilarious adult portrayal of life and love under the most peculiar conditions."
- Library Journal (US)
