"Henry Perowne is a contented man. Outside the hospital, the world is not so easy or predictable. There is an impending war against Iraq, and a general darkening and gathering pessimism since the New York and Washington attacks two years before. On this particular Saturday morning, Perowne's day moves from the ordinary to the extraordinary" (Publisher's blurb). "McEwan is one of the finest literary storytellers alive. He implants in the memory a living, flaming presence" (The New Republic). An absolute "must-have" title for Ian McEwan collectors. This copy is Number 1454, indicated/numbered as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen by Ian McEwan. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Slipcased Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award in 1976 for "First Love, Last Rites". Winner of the Booker Prize in 1998 for "Amsterdam". Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2002 for "Atonement". One of the greatest writers of our time. A flawless collectible copy.
