A Fistful of Fig Newtons: Stories.
by [American Humor] Shepherd, Jean.

Publisher Information:
Doubleday, New York: 1981.

A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine clipped dust jacket with a small chip to the heel of the spine and light edge wear to the head. This copy is signed: "Excelsior! Jean Shepherd." A very uncommon copy especially signed. The fourteen pieces in this collection confirm Shepherd's place among American humorists with his bittersweet views of twentieth century life, mores fashions and foibles. A Fistful of Fig Newtons is classic Jean Shepherd—sidesplittingly funny and sardonically irreverent. Here are Shepherd’s wild and wacky adventures, a dozen truer-than-life tales of college life on the G.I. Bill, of “Kidhood” in Hammond, Indiana, of tailgating on the Jersey Turnpike, and of other familiar defeats and humilations.
