The Uncorrected Proof is now scarce. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Marianne Wiggins. Printed on archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Marianne Wiggins' "Almost Heaven". Her best work, an astonishing achievement. At the time of his fatwa, now since officially "lifted" by Iran, Salman Rushdie was married to Marianne Wiggins, who acted as his intrepid and vital link to the outside world. A disciple of the great literary critic and cultural philosopher George Steiner, she has been championed by the influential Steiner as the brilliant writer that she truly is. An absolute "must-have" title for Marianne Wiggins collectors. This copy of the Uncorrected Proof is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Marianne Wiggins. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the Uncorrected Proof still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 1165
