A Fistful of Fig Newtons: Stories.

New York: Doubleday, 1981. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Very Good copy with a small stain to the front board in a Very Good plus clipped dust jacket with light edge wear. 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 humiliations. Item #27170
