RANDOM ACTS OF SENSELESS VIOLENCE, Womack, Jack
323 RANDOM ACTS OF SENSELESS VIOLENCE
Womack, Jack
Atlantic Monthly Press, 1994, 0871135779 / 9780871135773

First Edition, Hardcover, Very Fine, Very Fine. Book. 
Hardcover first edition, first printing and first US edition. Very fine (unread) copy in very fine jacket. Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy. Previously published by HarperCollins UK in 1993. First novel in Womack's Terraplane series. SF novel about five months in the life of a young girl living in near-future New York who witnesses (and chronicles in her diary) the decay and collapse of her family and civilization. "[Random Acts] isn't a comforting book. It's a work of raw courage, confronting the dark without sf's usual shields of irony or isolated intellect. I hope that doesn't scare you off, as it seems to have scared the US publishers so far. Our field is not yet so overrun with genius that we can afford to let even one brilliant, night-minded, novel slip through the cracks." - Locus, November 1993, pg. 21.
