Selected for a Pharos Editions' reissue by T.C. Boyle and featuring a foreword by Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Pharos Editions is proud to announce the long awaited revival of William Kotzwinkle's cult comic classic, The Fan Man . And just in time it is, too, man. If you haven't read it you are in for a rare and wondrous treat. If you have, isn't it about time you returned that copy you borrowed from your best pal Pete back in '74 and replace it with this stunning new edition, man?

I am all alone in my pad, man, my piled-up-to-the-ceiling-with-junk pad. Piled with sheet music, with piles of garbage bags bursting with rubbish and encrusted frying pans piled on the floor, embedded with unnameable flecks of putrefied wretchedness in grease. My pad, man, my own little Lower East Side Horse Badorties pad . . . . . . .And so it begins Badorties' narration of his down-at-the-heels drug-fueled befuddlement in New York City circa 1970.
