The copyright page has full number line "13 12 11 10 09     5 4 3 2 1". Format is softcover. The four reviews on the back of the first printing remained the same on the second and other early printings. These reviews are by Carolyn Chute, Rachael Perry, Laura Kasischke, and Jack Driscoll. American Salvage was published as part of Wayne State University's Made in Michigan writers series. The first printing consisted of 1,500 copies. There is no price listed anywhere on the book.

Note: American Salvage was reprinted by W. W. Norton & Company in late 2009. The Norton edition features the same cover photo by Mary Whalen, but the Norton edition uses a larger portion of the photo across the entire front cover, while the original Wayne State edition features a cropped photo that is positioned on the bottom two-thirds of the front cover. Also, the first Norton printing will have a full number line, so be careful not rely on this as your sole method of first edition identification.

American Salvage was a finalist for the National Book Award.
