[solid clean copy, a couple of very shallow dents to bottom edges of boards, minor scrunching at fore-edge of a few pages; jacket shows a bit of wrinkling, no tears or chips]. SIGNED by the author, on a card affixed to the ffep, and SIGNED again on the title page. A gruesomely funny novel about a guy who agrees to eat a car (a 1971 Ford Maverick, if you must know), half an ounce at a time, in a hotel lobby, with a national TV hookup. Crews has his finger on the pulse (or the throttle) of America's love affair with the automobile, and spins an outrageous yet entirely plausible satire, that forty years later looks almost prescient: in our "reality"-TV-saturated era, it's pretty easy to imagine a proposal for just this sort of thing sitting on some Hollywood executive's desk, right this minute.
