1st Printing. Signed. 70 pages. Published in 1989. Landmark collection of the author's novellas. One of the finest collections of the 20th century. 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 Cynthia Ozick's "The Shawl". "The Shawl" and "Rosa" were both included in the annual Best American Short Stories Series, awarded First Prizes in the annual O. Henry Prize Stories, and anthologized countless times. They are finally brought together beautifully in this single-volume edition. Few contemporary writers have explored the subject of loneliness as well as personal identity (which the author sees as inescapably linked with one's historical and ethnic roots) with as much tenderness and insight as Cynthia Ozick has. She is writing in three literary traditions simultaneously, all of them at the most profound level imaginable: The ancient Jewish, the modern European, and the Jamesian American. Hence, the dazzling allusiveness, poignant beauty, and sheer intensity of her work. An absolute "must-have" title for Cynthia Ozick collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Cynthia Ozick. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. She also underlined her signature for emphasis. This title is a great book. This is one of very 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: It is not price-clipped, has no tears, soiling or inscriptions whereas many copies available online have major flaws yet are priced as though they had collectible value. A scarce signed copy thus. Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 1996 for "Fame & Folly". Finalist for the National Book Award in 1997 for "The Puttermesser Papers". Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2001 for "Quarrel & Quandary". Recipient of the Lannan Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000. One of the greatest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CYNTHIA OZICK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0394579763. Bookseller Inventory #
