Presents Yiyun Li's "Gold Boy, Emerald Girl". Her second collection, which some critics and reader consider her best work thus far. "These nine brilliant stories offer a frighteningly lucid vision of human fate. A bravura piece of writing. Li's greatest achievement" (Publishers Weekly). Yiyun Li's subject, "weight", is the largest one in literature: The weight of Time, History, Place, and Fate. "All the stories came from situations, both Chinese and American, that could lead to different stories. The versions I chose to tell, I hope, have neither villains nor victims in them but people who have both taken from others and have been taken from, who have both deceived and been deceived, and who are as lonely as you and me" (Yiyun Li). An absolute "must-have" title for Yiyun Li collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Yiyun Li. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very 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. Yiyun Li was selected as one of the "20 Writers Under 40" of the decade by The New Yorker Magazine. One of the most brilliant writers of our time. A fine copy.
