About this Item

First Edition Limited. Signed by Author Slip-Case - Hard Cover. When Joseph Heller passed away some time ago we lost one of our most original literary voices. This beautiful Limited First Edition from the author of Catch 22 is in near fine condition. Square corners, clean, tight and crisp. It was published by the Knopf in 1984 and has become quite scarce. It is bound in a Beautiful Rainbow cloth. The dustjacket is in Fine condition with no rips or creases. It is housed in a decorative slipcase that is also near fine. The case shows very minor soiling and a bit of toning from age. This edition was Limited to 350 copies of which this is #225. A beautiful Signed copy of an important novel! God Knows is the story of David, warrior king of Israel and father of Solomon. The book is incredibly funny as well as deeply moving. It seems that God owes David an apology and as he lies on his deathbed he is waiting for it. He looks back on his long life. He rants, he jokes, he grieves, he talks poetry, he talks dirty and he holds nothing back. A really nice copy. We are pleased to send pictures on request. Bookseller Inventory # 002848
