From the Publisher
"I think this book is kind of malleable. I''ve never really wanted
to put it away and be done with it forever -- the second I first
''finished'' it, I wanted to dig back in and change everything
around. So I''m looking forward to getting back into the text, and
straightening and focusing and deleting. Most of all, I''m thrilled
that Vintage will be letting me include all the cool chase scenes,
previously censored." -- Dave Eggers
