New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, (1979). First edition. BOLDLY SIGNED on first blank page BY WOLFE and by ASTRONAUT JOHN GLENN. His best-known, best-selling book which, in Wolfe's own words, grew out of curiosity about what "makes a man willing to sit up on top of an enormous Roman candle… and wait for someone to light the fuse." Winner of the National Book Award for Nonfiction and basis for the Award-winning 1983 film of the same name. Fine in near fine dust jacket with just a touch of very minor creasing and two tiny closed tears.
