a novel in footnotes by. Dunn, Mark, 1956 –. Ibid: a life, by Mark Dunn. p. cm. ISBN 1-931561-65-6 (hardcover : alk. paper).
I have just completed my latest book project, a biography of Jonathan Blashette, the child circus sideshow performer who later made his fortune in male deodorants before engaging in philanthropy and other high profile hobbies. Blashette, for all his accomplishments, is best remembered for having three legs. Please find the manuscript enclosed. I am in the process of completing the book’s extensive endnotes and will send these along shortly. If you choose to consider the manuscript for publication, I ask only one favor: please take care not to lose it, as it is my only copy.
Ibid: A Life is the third novel by Mark Dunn, published in 2004. Its form is highly reminiscent of Nabokov's Pale Fire in that it consists almost entirely of a set of endnotes for a larger (non-existent) biographical work.

I have been looking forward to reading Ibid: A Life by Mark Dunn. I found Ibid hilarious, and really did laugh out loud several times.

A life by inference is better than no life at al. Dunn pushes his propensity for quirky to the limit, creating a full-length novel entirely upon the margins of a fictitious biography of Jonathan Blashette, a three-legged circus performer-cum entrepreneur and humanitarian.
Condition: Used; Good.
Mark Dunn returns for his third novel with MacAdam/Cage with Ibid, a novel written entirely in footnotes. Many authors give themselves wonderful license in their footnotes to let their guard down, even get a little frisky and mischievous. And so the idea for Ibid was born. Dunn pushes this propensity to the limit, and has created a full-length hilarious novel entirely upon the margins of a fictitious text.
