Green, Karen L.
Bough Down. [Signed limited edition including original collage].
Los Angeles: Siglio Press, 2013. Limited Edition of 25. Hardcover. As New/As New. 186 p. : col. ill. ; 20 cm. Red cloth over boards, gilt spine lettering. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. This book has been handled just enough to photograph and is pristine. Signed and numbered to the title page by the author (#21of 25). Enclosed in a glassine envelope attached to the first free endpaper, this limited edition also includes one of the artist's unique hand made works, a double postage stamp sized collage which is both initialed and authenticated with the artist's trademark fingerprint in red ink on the verso. A fantastic copy of an extremely limited edition long since sold out of an extraordinarily well received work of literature by the artist and widow of author David Foster Wallace, written after his untimely death. The Los Angeles Review of Books calls it "an astonishment", with reviewer and poet Maggie Nelson describing it as "one of the most moving, strange, original, harrowing, and beautiful documents of grief and reckoning I've read". From George Saunders: "This is a profound, lovely, bitterly funny book that fufills the first requirement of great art: it is magical."
