Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Dan Jenkins is a comic genius."
—Don Imus

Praise for Dead Solid Perfect:

"This is vintage Jenkins—profane, outrageous, and sharp-eyed in its parody of the overblown world of big-time golf. It is also distinguished by a climactic golf match that may be the funniest scene he's ever written."
Newsweek

"Dan Jenkins is the nearest thing to Ring Lardner this generation has ever seen. No one has captured the essential lunacy of the twentieth-century sports (and TV) scene as accurately and hilariously as this."
Los Angeles Times

"Jenkins is hilarious, providing more laughs per page than any other writer in the 'bidness.'"
