Samuel Johnson is Indignant
(Brooklyn), McSweeney's, (2001). Two advance copies of this collection of stories: one advance copy in the form of velobound 8-1/2" x 11" sheets, printed on rectos only. Signed on the front cover by Davis and also signed by David Byrne, who provided the front cover photo. Fine. Together with a copy of the first edition signed by Davis on the title page as well as on the half title, where she has added "with trumpets" and "9-24-01," the week prior to publication. Fine in a fine, first state dust jacket that is signed by David Byrne on the rear flap above his photo credit. Davis has been a MacArthur Fellow; a finalist for the National Book Award; and in 2013 she won the Man Booker International Prize. Byrne, the polymath founder and lead singer of the band Talking Heads, has won an Oscar, a Grammy, a Golden Globe, and was elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; his career has included film, photography, fiction and nonfiction, in addition to music.
