Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 311 pages. Published in 1999. The author's breakthrough fifth novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. Advance Reading Copy (ARC). Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. It was given to friends and colleagues of the publisher and author only and not commercially sold. There is no ISBN. The ARC is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Doubleday: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Jonathan Lethem. Printed on archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Jonathan Lethem's "Motherless Brooklyn". His single most beloved creation, his finest and most moving achievement thus far. In Lionel Essrog, Lethem has created one of the most unforgettable characters of contemporary American fiction, the "Human Freakshow", afflicted with Tourette's Syndrome. "The best novel of the year. Utterly original and deeply moving" (Esquire Magazine). "A wunderkind who in a scant five years has produced five aggressively original works of fiction. One waits eagerly to learn where Lethem will take us next" (Kirkus Reviews). An absolute "must-have" title for Jonathan Lethem collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in metallic-silver pen-marker on the title page by Jonathan Lethem. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The signature fills up the page and glows radiantly against the light. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Advance Reading Copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Crawford Award for Best Fantasy Novel and the Locus Award for Best First Novel in 1994 for "Gun, With Occasional Music". Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1999 for "Motherless Brooklyn". Selected as one of the "Best Books of The Year" by the New York Times in 2003 for "Fortress of Solitude". Winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant in 2005. One of the most brilliant new voices in American literature. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JONATHAN LETHEM TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
