Dust Jacket Condition: As New
Signed: Signed by Author
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. Signed. 248 pages. Published in 2008. The author's breakthrough third novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the American Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Joseph O'Neill's "Netherland". It is exquisitely written from first lapidary sentence to last, no question about that. But very large claims have been made for it by the few credible critical voices left in contemporary literature. James Wood, the preeminent, "almost-always-right" critic of his generation, devoted a full essay to it (instead of the standard review) in The New Yorker Magazine, comparing it to both "The Great Gatsby" and "A House For Mr. Biswas": "Has an ideological intricacy, a deep human wisdom, and prose grand enough to dare the comparison. O'Neill has Naipaul's genius for creating unforced ideological connections. And he knows perfectly well that when, on the last pages of his novel, he writes about a memory of Manhattan's skyline and the 'extraordinary promise in what we saw', he is hovering, like some novelistic Google Earther, over the sentence grids and prose plateaus of the last page of 'The Great Gatsby' " (James Wood). An absolute "must-have" title for Joseph O'Neill collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Joseph O'Neill. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. He also crossed out his printed name. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few 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 rare signed copy thus. Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award in 2008 for "Netherland". One of the most brilliant writers of our time. A fine copy.
