Book Condition: Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: Fine
Signed: Signed by Author
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. Signed. 276 pages. Published in 2002. 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 small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now scarce. Features a brilliant DJ design in black-and-white, presented reversibly, on the DJ's front and back covers. Presents Jonathan Safran Foer's "Everything Is Illuminated". His now-classic debut novel. The critical praise and raft of awards the book garnered are truly astonishing in light of the fact that Jonathan Safran Foer was just 25 years old when the book was published (he began writing the book in his late teens, and he had also already edited a literary tribute to the great Surrealist artist Joseph Cornell, "A Convergence of Birds"). "Not since 'A Clockwork Orange' has the English language been simultaneously mauled and energized with such brilliance and such brio" (The New York Times). The basis of the fine film directorial debut by Liev Schreiber, with Elijah Wood, Eugene Hutz, and an appearance by the author. An absolute "must-have" title for Jonathan Safran Foer collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in pen on the title page by Jonathan Safran Foer. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. It comes with a pristine copy of the Souvenir Program of the event during which his signature was obtained. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of The Guardian First Book Award for "Everything Is Illuminated" in 2002. One of the most brilliant new voices in American literature. A fine collectible copy.
