1st Printing. Signed. 226 pages. Published in 2006. The author's second novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Monica Ali's "Alentejo Blue". A book that captures lost lives with genuine empathy and in beautiful prose. "Written with the sensitivity and grace that readers loved in 'Brick Lane', this is the story of a village community in Portugal, told through the lives of men and women whose families have lived there for generations and some who are passing through: Teresa, a beautiful young teenager; the dysfunctional Potts family; Vasco, who has never recovered from the death of his American wife; an English tourist who fantasizes about making a new life; and a young engaged couple whose dreams fall apart" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Monica Ali collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Monica Ali. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Shortlisted for The Booker Prize in 2003 and nominated for the National Book Circle Critics Award for Fiction in 2003 for "Brick Lane". Selected by Granta Magazine as one of the "Twenty Best Young British Novelists". One of the most brilliant British novelists of our time. A fine copy.
