New York: The Viking Press, 1983. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 6 1/4 X 9 1/2 Inches. 342 PP. Near Fine / Very Good. Item #918
Author's first book. Signed twice by Bell. First signature is an inscription on the half title-page. The second signature is simply author's name and date (February 7, 1983) directly on the title-page. Original price of $15.75 intact on front flap of DJ. Slight toning to DJ edges. One of the cornerstone books of any collection of 1980's literature. Bell was New York's darling in the early 80's and while his writing career has been steady, he has yet to fully reach the heights that his potential tells us he might.
