Item #14666 A FAN'S NOTES. A Fictional Memoir. Frederick Exley.

A FAN'S NOTES. A Fictional Memoir

New York: Harper & Row, (1968). First edition. Hardcover. Subtitled "A Fictional Memoir" and categorized as fiction, the book is semi-autobiographical. In a brief "Note to the Reader" in the opening pages, Exley writes: "Though the events in this book bear similarity to those of that long malaise, my life...I have drawn freely from the imagination and adhered only loosely to the pattern of my past life. To this extent, and for this reason, I ask to be judged a writer of fantasy." A sardonic account of mental illness, alcoholism, insulin shock therapy and electroconvulsive therapy, and the black hole of sports fandom. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #14666

Price: $300.00
