Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 240 pages. Published in 2002. The author's breakthrough debut collection of short stories. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. 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 Adam Haslett's "You Are Not A Stranger Here". A stunning debut. His first, and still his best, book. Published to enormous critical acclaim, it established Adam Haslett as one of the most brilliant new voices in contemporary American literature. "Haslett writes quietly about sensational topics: Men cruising each other in the park at night; an abusive, self-hating relationship between two adolescent boys. A beautifully written collection that's as heartfelt as it is intelligent". Haslett's subject is the dysfunctional, un-moored American, as seen through the eyes of the mentally ill and the lives of gay men (Haslett, a Yale Law School student at the time of the book's publication, is openly gay). It is not the kind of vision - fearless, unsentimental, and honest - that endears a writer to millions of readers. Still, Haslett is "an enormously compassionate writer, and shows a lovely acuity about his people. He never romanticizes or oversimplifies" (Claire Dederer). An absolute "must-have" title for Adam Haslett collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black fountain pen on the title page by Adam Haslett. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is a contemporary classic. 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. A scarce signed copy thus. Finalist for the National Book Award in 2002. One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine copy.
