    Description

    Signed First Edition of David Foster Wallace's Masterpiece

    David Foster Wallace. Infinite Jest. Boston New York Toronto London: Little, Brown and Company, [1996].

    First edition. The author has crossed out the printed name on the title page and signed "David Foster Wallace" just above. Octavo. 1,079 pages.

    Publisher's dark blue cloth over lighter blue paper boards with silver spine titles. In original dust jacket. Minimal shelf wear and light bumping at the spine ends. A fine copy of Wallace's magnum opus.

    Destined to become one of the late-twentieth century's seminal works of fiction. Time magazine included the novel in its list of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present in 2005, less than a decade after the novel's publication. Even before the author's suicide in 2008, signed copies of this title were commanding premium prices.
