"Wolf in White Van is the first novel by the American author and singer-songwriter John Darnielle. Wolf in White Van tells the story of Sean Phillips, a reclusive game designer whose face has been severely disfigured. One reviewer characterizes Sean as someone "steeped in video games, bad sci-fi movies, and Conan the Barbarian comic books". The plot, which is told non-chronologically, alternates between Sean's childhood, adolescence, and adulthood to describe the circumstances surrounding the incident that disfigured him. A fictional play-by-mail role-playing game called Trace Italian figures prominently in the novel.

The novel has been described as a "meditation on the power of escape, exploring the escapist qualities of fantasy fiction and role-playing games, particularly as a way to cope with trauma. Wolf in White Van received positive reviews on release and was nominated for the 2014 National Book Award."

Times are hard. I'd rather not sell it but I don't really have much of a choice at this point. I know there are plenty fans of him and his music and book and words so I figured I' start here before taking the ebay route. Let me know. I'll work with you.

I would be interested, Ryan. I still have not actually gotten the book. Been too swamped to read anything of late. Do you have one to sell?

yes I do actually. I picked up three because i'm insane so if you want to buy one by all means let me know! I'd just give it away as a gift but I'm in horrible shape in the finance department
