Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 234 pages. Published in 1994. The author's debut novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. 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 Edwidge Danticat's "Breath, Eyes, Memory". Her first book. Danticat was 24 years old when her book appeared, prompting comparisons to Toni Morrison, Mary McCarthy, and Maxine Hong Kingston. The Haiti-born writer has since lived up to her early promise as a writer of limpid and luminous prose. Danticat is The Real Thing: A writer without a "message", but with a sensibility, mastery of the English language, and acute powers of observation and insight distinctly her own. Every book by Edwidge Danticat is quietly enthralling. It blows away the shallow and self-indulgent life stories of her fellow American writers, and deserves to be read by anyone who still cares about writing as literature. An absolute "must-have" title for Edwidge Danticat collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Edwidge Danticat. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This comes with the Brooklyn Book Festival Author's Bookmark and the festival's Souvenir Program. This title is a contemporary classic. 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 Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Foundation Grant in 1998 for "The Farming of Bones". Finalist for the National Book Award in 2007 for "Brother, I'm Dying". Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of the "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". Winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant in 2009. One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EDWIDGE DANTICAT TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1569470057. Bookseller Inventory # 18518
