1st Printing. Signed. 546 pages. Published in 1998. The author's sixth novel. One of Richard Price'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 Richard Price's "Freedomland". Like his previous novels, a crime drama set in the slums of fictional Dempsy, New Jersey. "His language is street-fresh, his dialogue as if eaves-dropped; his characters are soulful, flawed, dead real. Price's experience as a screenwriter shows in the dramatic arc of his tale, but the novel is no less powerful. Within its structural confines, the story line veers in unexpected directions, with each detour bringing readers closer to Price's ultimate vision: That our nation's hope lies not in social movements but in the flame of humaneness that flickers in each of us, cop and criminal, black and white" (Publishers Weekly). The basis of the controversial film adaptation by Joe Roth, with Samuel L. Jackson and Julianne Moore. An absolute "must-have" title for Richard Price collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Richard Price. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in or bookplate. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Announcement 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. Please note: Most copies available online have serious flaws and have no collectible value as such. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy.
