Detailed item info

Synopsis
In CHIMERAJohn Barth injects his signature wit into the tales of Scheherezade of the Thousand and One Nights, Perseus, the slayer of Medusa, and Bellerophon, who tamed the winged horse Pegasus. In a book that the Washington Post called "stylishly maned, tragically songful, and serpentinely elegant, " Barth retells these tales from varying perspectives, examining the myths' relationship to reality and their resonance with the contemporary world. A winner of the National Book Award, this feisty, witty, sometimes bawdy book provoked Playboy to comment, "There's every chance in the world that John Barth is a genius."

Signed/Inscribed/Dated ~ Chimera by John Barth




Fine/Near Fine, First Edition, First Printing. Random House, New York, 1972. Signed boldly by the author directly to the half-title page, inscribed amusingly "to Joy,/joy," and dated "2/77". A rather scarce signed copy thus of this National Book Award winner, from the esteemed modern first collection of Joy Kritzer. The book itself is unread and is in fine condition, but for the slightest bit of soiling to the top/fore-edge of the text block. The dust jacket - which is now protected by a removable Brodart archival cover - is easily near fine, with just some very minor rubbing and a small crease at the bottom corner of the front flap. A beautiful collectible copy; please feel free to make me a fair offer, and be sure to check out the other signed John Barth titles in my collection!
