Description
 
New York, NY: Random House (1996)

First Edition. Signed.

Very good in dust jacket. This is a library copy and it has library markings (Wilmington, Ohio) on the title page. The library card pocket on the back end paper and the end papers show wear the jacket was glued to the end paper at one time. Despite it being a library copy, the book is in nice shape and there are no library markings on the dust jacket. There is gentle shelf wear to the ends of the spine.

The book is signed and dated (2012) on the half title page. This is Saunders' first book.

Since its publication in 1996, George Saunders’s debut collection has grown in esteem from a cherished cult classic to a masterpiece of the form, inspiring an entire generation of writers along the way.

In six stories and a novella, Saunders hatches an unforgettable cast of characters, each struggling to survive in an increasingly haywire world. With a new introduction by Joshua Ferris and a new author’s note by Saunders himself, this edition is essential reading for those seeking to discover or revisit a virtuosic, disturbingly prescient voice.
