Publisher: New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2000
Book Condition: As New
Dust Jacket Condition: As New
Signed: Signed by Author
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. Signed. 167 pages. Published in 2000. The author's fourth novel. One of Mona Simpson's finest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Mona Simpson's "Off Keck Road". So closely and tautly written that it has been mistakenly labeled as a novella by some commentators. It is a novel, near-perfect, and proof that brevity is the soul of wisdom. "Should not be read in public places, against the certainty of tears. Continually moving in a wry, Chekhovian way" (The Atlantic Monthly). An absolute "must-have" title for Mona Simpson collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and inscribed in red fountain pen on the title page by the author: "With best wishes, Mona Simpson Oak Park". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is named. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, placed, and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MONA SIMPSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0375410104. Bookseller Inventory # 3053
