First edition. One of Williams’ favorite works, he described the writing of it as follows: “I decided that I would write something every day, without missing one day, for a year. I’d write nothing planned but take up a pencil, put the paper before me, and write anything that came to me head . . . Not a word was to be changed. I didn’t change any, but I did tear up some of the stuff.” Wallace, A4.
