"You said you'd get back to me. You didn't. And now in the name of all writers who get pushed around by studio executives I'm going to kill you." Signed first edition of "sadistic moralist" Michael Tolkin’s dystopian cult classic. Drawing directly on his experiences as a television writer and screenwriter, Tolkin’s satirical portrait of Hollywood greed swiftly put him on the literary map, resulting in an Oscar-nominated adaptation by cinema master Robert Altman in 1992. Signed by the author on the title page. Sticker residue to upper panel of unclipped dust jacket, sticker to lower panel, else fine. Item #5884
