Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE----------------COYOTE V. ACME by Ian Frazier. Ian Frazier, the champ in the nearly empty field of "Humorist, Brainy Division," offers up another collection of short pieces. The equal of 1986's splendid Dating Your Mom, Coyote V. ACME leaves almost any other funny book far, far behind. Frazier's talent is like that of a master safecracker: he never leaves any fingerprints. He recreates the tone and tics of a commonplace document--a letter from a bank President, or a legal brief--but ever so slyly lets flickers of absurdity emerge and build. Here's evidence of his style, from the title piece: "In addition to reducing all Mr. Coyote's careful preparations to naught, the premature detonation of Defendant's product resulted in the following disfigurements to Mr. Coyote: 1. Severe singeing of the hair on the head, neck, and muzzle. 2. Sooty discoloration. 3. Fracture of the left ear at the stem, causing the ear to dangle in the aftershock with a creaking noise." As with most written humor, the closer you pay attention, the more Frazier's pieces yield. So settle in, and read Coyote V. ACME carefully--you won't be disappointed. This is the OVERSIZED softcover stated Noonday First Edition from 1997. Both the cover and the book are in excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight (see photo). **Note: All books listed as FIRST EDITIONS are stated by the publisher in words or number lines--or--only stated editions that include only the publisher and publication date.
