I found my copy on a shelf, looking for something to read. It's signed, #25...cover flap is bent inside, but other than that, like new. This author is a little difficult for me to read. I was just gonna read it and then toss it, as I have thousands of books & no room. (I used to work for an independant bookstore, & have a lot of signed books) Is it really worth $250? I guess I won't toss it after all, but would have no problem selling it. I found it kind of depressing, but then that just may be me. He was an excellant wordsmith, however.
