WALLACE, David Foster.

Item Number: 96788

New York: The Viking Press, 1987.

First edition of the author’s first book, which consisted of a printing run of 1300 copies. Octavo, original half cloth. Boldly signed and dated by the author on the title page, “David Foster Wallace 2/96.” Fine in a fine dust jacket. An exceptional example.

Published when the author was just twenty-four years old, The Broom of the System stunned critics and marked the emergence of an extraordinary new talent. "Daring, hilarious... a zany picaresque adventure of contemporary America run amok" (The New York Times).
