Publisher: New York City, NY: Random House, 2005
Book Condition: Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: Fine
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. 822 pages. Published in 2005. The author's eleventh novel. One of John Irving's finest achievements. 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. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents John Irving's "Until I Find You". Like all of John Irving's novels, it is long ("Less is not more. More is more"), and it is autobiographical. Unlike all of them, its laser-beam focus (not just emphasis) on pre-pubescent sexuality, the sexual molestation of a boy at the hands (literally) of older women has been dubbed "the narrative of a penis", in the now-infamous review by the brilliant novelist Marianne Wiggins. Once close friends, the two writers no longer speak to each other. "Irving's descriptions are distressing to read, but they force the reader to relate to the characters in a way they would not in most works of fiction" (Calgary Herald). Reviews notwithstanding, the book climbed to and stayed at the top of bestseller lists throughout the world. A novel that the reader must judge for himself. An absolute "must-have" title for John Irving collectors. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few 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 copy thus. One of the greatest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOHN IRVING TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1400063833. Bookseller Inventory # 16332
