THE HUNGER FOR MORE: Searching for Values in an Age of Greed.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Times Books, (1989) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - Before Shames became known for his offbeat Key West mysteries, he was a journalist, and the author of serious non-fiction books. This, his second book, is perhaps even more relevant today than it was when it was written. "More. If there's a single word that summarizes American hopes and obsessions, that's it. More money. More success. More luxuries and gizmos.. . [as argued in] this brilliant and acerbic analysis of contemporary American values and foibles, the hunger for more has characterized America from its frontier beginnings." SIGNED on the title page. Notes, index. xi, 291 pp. ISBN: 0-812916565.
Condition: Very near fine in a like dustjacket.
