Wallace, David Foster
New York: Little, Brown,
1996. First printing.
This now-legendary novel has become one of the most sought-after of recent years, particularly since the author's death. This is the true first printing, with full number-line and 'Vollmann" misspelling to jacket.
Extremely long and self-referential, it is nevertheless a blast to read. Wallace has succeeded in creating a very amusing satire of the modern world, with mystery at the center and the often corrupt ingenuities of youth as its driving force.
