1 5822 KRIST, Gary Extravagance
Hardcover Broadway Books: NY; 2002; First US Edition Very Good+ in Near Fine dust wrapper  
291 pages; Spine tail bumped, a few smudges to page edges. Unclipped dust wrapper has faint edgewear. A very nice copy.; 'William Tobias Merrick, an energetic young man from the provinces, travels to the big city in a time of great optimism and ferment, hoping to make his mark on a frenzied, money-crazed society obsessed with the promise of new technologies. The city in question is London in the 1690s. It is also New York in the 1990s. The new technologies are diving bells and pneumatic winches; they are also wireless telecommunication devices and patented biotechnology processes. In this time-tripping novel of speculative fever, the author tells the same story with the same set of characters in two separate times and settings, in language appropriate to each. Unfolding simultaneously in two distant but remarkably similar periods of history "Extravagance" is a comic picaresque novel of financial mania, the story of a world gripped by irrational exuberance.'; Published @ $24.00.
