Read Me: A Century of Classic American Book Advertisements : This witty and heavily illustrated volume features more than 300 vintage book advertisements - startling and strange, beautiful and funny - that together reveal a kind of secret history of American literature over the last century. New York Times book critic Dwight Garner brings together original ads for some of the most acclaimed and best-selling books of the twentieth century, including The Great Gatsby, Ulysses, On the Road, Invisible Man, Lolita, Silent Spring, The Joy of Sex, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72, White Noise, and dozens of other classics. These ads show us famous books when they were simply new volumes jostling for attention on bookstore shelves, not yet icons of our literary culture. And the ads capture many beloved authors - Toni Morrison, Cormac McCarthy, Susan Sontag, and Kurt Vonnegut among a great many others - at moments before their careers were assured, before their personas had hardened into those of "famous writers."
