Information
First edition first print hardback of X20 by Richard Beard and published by Flamingo in 1996. Signed and dated by Beard on the title page. Full numberline is 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2.

The book is in near fine condition (black cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine) with no significant wear. The book is in a very good unclipped dust jacket which has light creasing to the edges. Internally the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

Gregory Simpson is giving up smoking and he has a plan: each time he craves a cigarette he'll write something down instead. But everything he writes has something to do with smoking; X20 (the title refers to the number of cigarettes in a pack) is the result -- a crisp, funny, and devastatingly stylish debut from an extraordinary new talent.In the first throes of withdrawal, Simpson writes in tense fits and starts, obsessing over lost loves and how cigarettes both blessed and doomed these relationships. As his ability to concentrate without cigarettes improves day-by-day, he reexamines his friendship with Dr. Barclay, a scientist forever on the verge of developing a safe cigarette, and with Julian Carr, an old friend and now a flack for a cigarette company. Beard's acclaimed debut novel.
