BLOOD ACRE - Scarce Fine Copy of The First Hardcover Edition/First Printing: Signed by Peter Landesman
Available From More sellersView all copies of this book
1st Printing. Signed. 260 pages. Published in 1999. The author's second novel. 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 Peter Landesman's "Blood Acre". A brilliant follow-up novel by the widely-acclaimed author of "The Raven". Exquisitely written, this is a "genuine tour-de-force, an apocalyptic murder mystery that demands to be read in a single setting" (Times Literary Supplement). The novel has been compared to Malcolm Lowry's "Under The Volcano" (by James McConkey) and to William Styron's work by Stewart O'Nan, who asserts that what Landesman has pulled off is a more poetic version of the hard-boiled thriller: "The soft-boiled thriller, where every wound weeps, every memory stings, and every dream festers" (Stewart O'Nan). Landesman is a brilliant American writer with a solid cult following, who deserves to be read by a much wider audience. An absolute "must-have" title for Peter Landesman collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Peter Landesman. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of 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. Winner of the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1995 for "The Raven". One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PETER LANDESMAN TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0670882070. Bookseller Inventory # 1518
