AN UNDERACHIEVER'S DIARY.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Dial Press, (1998) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The author's first book, a novella "grounded in a very slim conceit. Of two brothers born into a trendy Cambridge, Massachusetts, household, one twin is set for success, the other for chronic failure. Although ill-fated William actually beat Clive into the world by seven minutes, it's straight downhill from there." Author Thomas Mallon comments that "His witty, sorrowful hero speaks in a voice that snares the listener as fully as Salinger's Seymour Glass once did. An Underachiever's Diary - the cleverest literary monologue in a long while - is in fact an extremely precocious debut." SIGNED on the title page. 147 pp. ISBN: 0-385319983.
Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
