      Mad World of William M. Gaines. INSCRIBED by William Gaines on the front free endpaper. Tape shadows on boards and paste-downs where the dust jacket had been taped to the book - all tape has been successfully removed but has left impressions, moderate soiling to boards and text block edges, previous owner's name and date also on front free. Hard to be sure why this book, its contents enjoyed in a magazine during childhood, was such a let down now. Perhaps it is the way the stories are reformatted for this paperback. Perhaps there are too many high word count stories, when the best humor in the book is mostly visual/5(5).
