An absolute "must-have" title for Aleksandar Hemon, Nicole Krauss, and contemporary literature collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Aleksandar Hemon. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page.

They made rare appearances at the 2012 PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature. This title is a contemporary classic.

A rare signed copy thus. Some of the world's greatest writers of our time. A fine copy.
