James Purdy?

I just read an article about the American Writer James Purdy. Frankly, an author I had never heard of. He sounds like an interesting guy. Can anyone recommend "The One Book" of his that will be a good introduction to his stuff?

The only book of his that I have read is The Complete Short Stories of James Purdy. I thought it was excellent but it was all the local library had by him.

Sorry, Harry. I had my head up my . . . ah, my brain was, ah, otherwise occupied.

I'm surprised by the lack of suggestions not only here, but on a writing site I belong to. I have always assumed I'm the last guy to learn about something cool, so I thought I'd be inundated with great suggestions! Not so much.

I guess I'll go commando and buy a book.
