New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1988. First Edition. Hard Cover with Slipcase. Near Fine / Very Good. Item #072291
Crisp, bright, and clean except for a hint of shelf rubbing at the spine heel of the full cloth hard cover as well as three small, dark spots along the head edge of the publisher's original slipcase and gentle fading around the open edges; otherwise excellent. Limited edition signed by the author on a specially bound-in page following the front endpaper, numbered 182 (of 250). Too early to have ended postmodernism, this must have started it, for we all know Roth never did anything partway.
