Synopsis: National Book Award finalist: Look who's on the "Dick Gibson Radio Show": Arnold the Memory Expert ("I've memorized the entire West Coast shoreline - except for cloud cover and fog banks"). Bernie Perk, the burning pharmacist. Henry Harper, the nine-year old orphan millionaire, terrified of being adopted. The woman whose life revolves around pierced lobes. An evil hypnotist. Swindlers. Con-men. And Dick Gibson himself. Anticipating talk radio and its crazed hosts, Stanley Elkin creates a brilliant comic world held together by American manias and maniacs in all their forms, and a character who perfectly understands what Americans want and gives it to them.

From the Author: "In The Dick Gibson Show [Elkin] turns that friend of midnight drivers, the trivial and dreary all-night talk show, into a fast, loud circus of bickering and outrageous consciously Chaucerian tales.... It's raw energy that Elkin loves.... He's Ahab smashing through the mask with jokes. Grizzly reality is his straight man." (John Gardner)

Stanley. This is a recording.'. Signed By Author. Seller Inventory # 199452
