Chapbook collection of short stories, excerpts from published work, and work-in-progress. The first and only edition.

An austerely elegant production by The Editors of McSweeney's: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spiral binding, as issued. Contributions by various authors. Illustrations appended at the end. One quotation each from Rudolph Valentino and Sigmund Freud on the back cover. Printed on archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of a one-time-only reading held at the Diesel Bookstore on May 6, 2003 to help raise funds for Dave Eggers' celebrated project, 826 Valencia, a writing and tutoring center for young people in San Francisco. The project has since successfully expanded throughout the country. The Contributions are "Fever" by Michael Chabon, "True Story" by Amanda Davis, "Naturally" by Daniel Handler, and "Favor" by Ayelet Waldman. A lovely and treasurable collection, this is an instant collectible for Michael Chabon, Daniel Handler, Ayelet Waldman, Dave Eggers, and McSweeney's collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed by Michael Chabon (in blue pen), Ayelet Waldman (in black marker), and Daniel Handler (in black ink-pen). Chabon and Waldman are a husband-and-wife writing team. Amanda Davis, who had published a debut novel and a short story collection, died on March 14, 2003. This is the only copy of this Special Issue available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. Four of the finest American writers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MICHAEL CHABON, DANIEL HANDLER, AND DAVE EGGERS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $200.00
