A Fan's Notes by Frederick Exley
FIRST PAPERBACK EDITION  RANDOM HOUSE
Rare 1968 premium trade paperback. Thick cover and heavyweight paper. Cover has fading to spine and some damage [sealed tear] to back cover. Binding is tight. Inside reads nicely.
Frederick Exley's inimitable "fictional memoir" traces a self professed failure's nightmarish decent into the underside of American life and his resurrection to the wisdom that emerges from despair. A Fan's Notes has assumed the status of a classic since its first publication in 1968.
