This is a beautiful Proof copy of Elmore Leonard's 'Freaky Deaky'. The book is in Fine condition and has clearly never been read. It is bound in orange wraps (large trade paperback) and the wraps are virtually pristine but for the marker writing on the front panel. It is very common for proofs to be marked by the publisher or author in the process of getting the first edition printed. Proofs are printed in very small quantities and serve the purpose of allowing the author and the publisher to make any needed corrections before the first edition is printed. Proofs are much more scarce than first editions. There are no creases to the spine panel of the proof and there are no turned corners. The textblock is absolutely clean and the book has 339 pages. Elmore Leonard is also the author of many other bestselling crime novels such as 'Get Shorty', 'Glitz', and 'Bandits'. He is a Hollywood insider because of his extensive work with screenplays and the adaptation of his novels to the film format. George Will has said "O.K. Here's what you do. Stand in the bookstore and read the first chapter of 'Freaky Deaky'. Won't take long. Only ten pages. The store owner won't mind because he knows you will then buy the book". Elmore Leonard's novels are of crime and humor and feature Plots that simply cannot be resisted. They are highly enjoyable and Leonard himself is known for his incredible skill at writing dialogue. There is no one like him. This book is fun and funny and will take you on a very enjoyable escapade. A true collector’s item. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
