Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 434 pages. Published in 1996. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a tiny first print as a hardcover original only. The first print run utilizes an elegantly beautiful translucent glassine DJ. This First-State DJ was quickly replaced with a cheap, inferior stock paper Second-State DJ for the rest of the run and all other multiple printings. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Jacquelyn Mitchard's "The Deep End of The Ocean". Her first, and still her finest, novel. "Displaying an infallible ear for family conversation and a keen eye for domestic detail, she writes dialogue that vibrates with natural and unforced humor and acerbic repartee. She charts the subtle and minute gradations of maternal love with candor and captures the essence of teenage experiences and lingo. The novel becomes a universal tale of traumatic loss and its effects on individuals and families, an astute inquiry into the wellsprings of identity, and a parable of redemption through suffering and love" (Publishers Weekly). The basis of the fine film by Ulu Grosbard, with Michelle Pfeiffer and Treat Williams. An absolute "must-have" title for Jacquelyn Mitchard collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed and dated (in the month and year of publication) in blue ink-pen on the title page by the author: "Jacquelyn Mitchard June 1996". 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 and dated copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing in the First-State translucent glassine DJ available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JACQUELYN MITCHARD TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0670865796. Bookseller Inventory # 9218
