1st Printing. Signed. 200 pages. Published in 2000. The author's fourth novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. This Hardcover Edition was issued after the phenomenal success of "Artemis Fowl", and has become as coveted as its softcover original-predecessor. Eoin (pronounced "Owen") Colfer achieved global fame with his "Artemis Fowl" Series, and deservedly so. Presents Eoin Colfer's "The Wish List". His best novel before he began his celebrated Series belongs on every Colfer reader/collector's shelf. "The Wish List" has rich Dickensian undertones and one of Colfer's most brilliantly imagined twists: Meg Finn has had the prototypical miserable Irish life. First, her mother dies, leaving her with a nasty stepfather. Angry and alone, Meg finds herself committing acts of petty crime. Just as she is about to go straight, she gets killed in a botched robbery attempt. St. Peter and Beelzebub cannot decide which way Meg is supposed to go because she is "one in a million": A soul perfectly balanced between Good and Evil. They finally decide that Meg has to go back and somehow tip the scales up. She is assigned to help the last person she hurt, a man with a wish list of wrong choices that he wants to make right. "Refreshing, inventive, witty, and original" (Prue Goodwin). A soul perfectly balanced between Good and Evil: It may be a fantasy, but Colfer somehow makes us believe that many, if not most, of us start out that way and like Meg, work our way up. An absolute "must-have" title for Eoin Colfer collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Eoin Colfer. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. 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. Please note: The softcover original commands more than $600 while many other copies of both the British and American Hardcover Editions available online have major flaws. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EOIN COLFER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0670913855. Bookseller Inventory # 13534
