Shiny Adidas Tracksuits and the Death of Camp
NY, Berkley Boulevard Books, (1998). 32 essays from Eggers' Might magazine, which preceded McSweeney's. Includes David Foster Wallace's "Hail the Returning Dragon, Clothed in New Fire," and a foreword, apparently by Eggers, that explains why the magazine folded in 1997, in part, because they had a rule that they had to like the things they printed, which precluded "articles about celebrities, clothes, electronics, makeup, cars, video games, beer, night life generally, and shoes." Signed (initialed) by Eggers at his essay "Never Fucked Anyone." Also signed by Donnell Alexander. Age-toned pages, thus near fine in wrappers. [#032993] $75
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
