Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 265 pages. Published in 2011. The author's third novel. One of the greatest novels of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in the Everyman's Library 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, on the occasion of the novel's 20th Anniversary, and on the same day as the American publication of Michael Ondaatje's sixth novel, "The Cat's Table". The First Edition Thus is now scarce. Presents Michael Ondaatje's "The English Patient". His masterpiece. It also comes with a brilliant Essay/Introduction by Pico Iyer, which appears in this edition only. The novel is his famous homage/response to Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "One Hundred Years of Solitude" (1970), which Ondaatje considers to be the greatest achievement of Latin-American Magical Realism, and the model for the modern novel. Ondaatje has said that, like Garcia Marquez, he approached the novel form with "fresh eyes, as a barge that can carry the cargo called everything", accommodating any and every conceivable subject in a way that no other literary genre can, its success or failure to keep this heavy barge afloat entirely dependent upon the individual writer's genius and ambition. There is no question that its complex, multi-layered narrative revitalized the Modernist "stream-of-consciousness" style and more important, melded it triumphantly with gripping historical romance. There is also no question that Ondaatje brought to the novel a poetic sensibility that other novelists either do not possess or as in V. S. Naipaul's case, rejects outright. "Wears the triple crown: It is profound, beautiful, and heart-quickening" (Toni Morrison). The basis of the great Academy Award-winning film by Anthony Minghella, whose screenplay was written by Ondaatje, with career-making performances by Ralph Fiennes, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Juliette Binoche. An absolute "must-have" title for Michael Ondaatje collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Michael Ondaatje. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is the Souvenir Bookmark of the bookstore where the signing was held. This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Everyman's Library Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies of the First Edition available online command between $500 and $800. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1992 for "The English Patient". One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MICHAEL ONDAATJE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0307700879.
