About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Big As Life by Doctorow, E. L..

Description:

First edition of author's scarce second book. This copy is inscribed and signed by Doctorow on front endpaper, and even the inscription -- "To ____, a rare edition" -- attests to the scarcity of this title. Although not set in the future, Doctorow employs the science fiction device of a catastrophic event -- in this instance, the appearance of two gigantic figures in New York Harbor -- and the resultant human drama that unfolds in response to it. To date, Doctorow has not allowed this book to be reprinted. Faint strip of sunning along upper extremity of front cover, small spot to back cover, else a nearly fine copy in unfaded dust wrapper which shows light wear to lower corners. Bookseller Inventory #
