CONSIDER THE LOBSTER, SIGNED BY DAVID FOSTER WALLACE
WALLACE, David Foster. Consider the Lobster and Other Essays. New York and Boston: Little, Brown, (2005). Octavo, original half red paper boards, original dust jacket.
First edition of Wallace's collection of ten essays, signed on the title page by him with his characteristic line drawn through his printed name, a beautiful copy.
This volume of ten "literary essays and reportage pieces written for assorted magazines… reminds the reader of both [Wallace's] copious literary gifts and his keen sense of the absurdities of contemporary life in America at the cusp of the millennium" (New York Times). The recipient of a MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" in 1997, Wallace committed suicide at age 46 in 2008. "First Edition: December 2005" on copyright page.
A fine copy.
