The Kingdom of Speech
NY, Little Brown, (2016). The final book of nonfiction by the author of The Right Stuff, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, and The Bonfire of the Vanities, among many others. This book, a critique of Charles Darwin and Noam Chomsky, is inscribed by Wolfe to his lawyer, Alvin Deutsch: "Alvin! Has it really been 50 years since the day Tom Wolfe, at the suggestion of Byron Dobell, came to see Attorney Bella Linden and was introduced to her partner, Counselor Deutsch?" Included with this copy is Deutsch's article entitled "Tom Wolfe: Latter Day Exegete of the U.S. Copyright Act," originally delivered in 2002 as part of a panel discussion at Yale Law School, and issued here as an offprint of the Journal of the Copyright Society of the USA (Vol. 50, 2003). The 6-page offprint is near fine in wrappers. But for a very slight bump to the lower rear board edge, the book is fine in a fine dust jacket. Uncommon signed, especially with such a good association. [#035694] SOLD

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
