New York, NY: Farrar Straus Giroux, 1980. First Edition. Hardcover. "...Tom Wolfe brings his chronicle of American life forward through the 1970s and into the 1980s- with drawings, as well as the prose style for which he has become well known in best sellers such as The Right Stuff and The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. Rumbling through In Our Time like an indoor temblor is the shifting moral terrain of America." (from front flap) A collection of essays & drawings written & illustrated by Tom Wolfe (1930-2018), the exemplar-inventor of the New Journalism who chronicled the foibles & sweeping changes in American society over five crucial decades. Hilariously absurd, provocative, satirical, stranger-than-fiction- this is Wolfe in his sharply perceptive prime. A bold production, large hardcover in unclipped dust jacket, first edition, first printing of 1980 as stated on copyright page. A classic collectible in the Wolfe canon. Book in very fine condition with only slight browning-sunning to light purple front & back paper boards; a bit of wear & fading to edges & corners of same & darker purple cloth spine. Interior very fine, substantially mint. dust jacket fine with slightest rubbing & browning to front, back covers, spine & flaps; very light wear & a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same; line of tiny, non-penetrating dimples at lower-middle area of back cover (not substantially effecting self-portrait illustration); several creases at upper area of front flap; previous bookseller's small sticker affixed to blank lower margin of rear flap; very small sticker with hand-written "4" forming the last number of printed ISBN (only reference to same in jacket, none in book) also at lower margin of rear flap. Very Fine / Fine. [Item #3745]
