Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 275 pages. Published in 2015. The author's novel based on William Shakespeare's play. One of Jeanette Winterson's finest achievements. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly copies that are signed on a tipped-in page or bookplate. Published in a very small and limited first print run as the very first volume of the "Hogarth Shakespeare" Series and as a hardcover original only. "Autographed Copy" green sticker pasted in front. Presents Jeanette Winterson's "The Gap of Time". The inaugural volume from Hogarth Press' ambitious project of modern re-tellings of Shakespeare. It is Winterson's deeply moving version of "The Winter's Tale". One of The Bard's greatest achievements, "it tells the story of a king whose jealousy results in the banishment of his baby-daughter and the death of his beautiful wife. His daughter is found and brought up by a shepherd on the Bohemian Coast, but through a series of extraordinary events, father and daughter are reunited. In Jeanette Winterson's re-telling, we move from London, a city reeling after the 2008 financial crisis, to a storm-ravaged American city called New Bohemia. Her story is one of friendship, money, status, technology, and the elliptical nature - the gap - of time" (Publisher's blurb). "A shining delight of a novel, capturing unspoken emotion with powerful lyricism. Propelled by an intricately suspenseful series of scenes that capture the raw violence stemming from greed, envy, and paranoia. Winterson emerges with a contemporary tale that stands wholly on its own despite The Bard's significant shadow. But then again, show us a writer who isn't under that shadow" (The New York Times). This is not Winterson's first crack at the classics. She came up with the idea, then shepherded and edited the landmark collection of modern re-tellings of operas called "Midsummer Nights" in 2009. One of the latter's contributors was Ruth Rendell, the mystery-thriller writer who was a close friend of Winterson, and to whom "The Gap of Time" is posthumously dedicated. Published to critical acclaim, the book has prompted many other distinguished writers to offer their services (that is, actually volunteer) to write the next books in Hogarth's Series. An absolute "must-have" title for Jeanette Winterson collectors. This Autographed Copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in purple ink-pen on the title page by Jeanette Winterson. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate, as most copies available online are. Winterson launched the book in New York City, but did not tour to promote the book. This title will become a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant living novelists. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JEANETTE WINTERSON AND "MIDSUMMER NIGHTS" TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0804141355.

Synopsis: The Winter?s Tale is one of Shakespeare?s ?late plays.? It tells the story of a king whose jealousy results in the banishment of his baby daughter and the death of his beautiful wife. His daughter is found and brought up by a shepherd on the Bohemian coast, but through a series of extraordinary events, father and daughter, and eventually mother too, are reunited.

In Jeanette Winterson?s retelling of The Winter?s Tale we move from London, a city reeling after the 2008 financial crisis, to a storm-ravaged American city called New Bohemia. Her story is one of childhood friendship, money, status, technology and the elliptical nature of time. Written with energy and wit, this is a story of the consuming power of jealousy on one hand, and redemption and the enduring love of a lost child on the other.

Product Description: One of Shakespeare's final plays, The Winter's Tale is the spellbinding story of newfound love, treacherous jealousy, revenge, regret, and ultimately, redemption. Beloved and award-winning author Jeanette Winterson will introduce this classic in a new and unique way, in the first installment of Hogarth's historic Shakespeare series.
