Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions by Daniel Wallace 


Hardcover with dust jacket in very good condition.  Dust jacket has been price clipped on front panel, but is otherwise very good with some foxing to underside. 

Book itself is very good as well.  Cover is near perfect w/ one small spot stain on back and some light foxing to upper-outside page edges [see last photo.]

He could outrun anybody, and he never missed a day of school. He saved lives, tamed giants. Animals loved him. People loved him. Women loved him (and he loved them back). And he knew more jokes than any man alive.

Now, as he lies dying, Edward Bloom can't seem to stop telling jokes -or the tall tales that have made him, in his son's eyes, an extraordinary man. Big Fish is the story of this man's life, told as a series of legends and myths inspired by the few facts his son, William, knows. Through these tales -hilarious and wrenching, tender and outrageous- William begins to understand his elusive father's great feats, and his great failings.
