A Fan's Notes

By EXLEY, Frederick

New York: Harper and Row, 1968. Fine. Advance Reading Copy. Printed red wrappers. About fine. Inscribed by Exley: "For Burt Britton with all deep affection 11/19/74 Exley, and thank you." Exley's well-received first book, a "fictional memoir" (which seems more memoir than fiction). An exploration of the life of a fan of the New York Giants football team, told between drinking bouts and episodes of madness. A title which in recent years has been steadily gaining recognition as a masterpiece. Famously troubled, Exley wasn't a prolific signer and this is the only signed copy of the Advance Reading Copy that we've seen.
