About this Item

Second printing. Inscribed and signed by the author on the half-title page: "For Liz, Jane and Adele / Ethan Hawke." The author and actor's first novel. Hawke also wrote and directed the 2006 movie of the same name, which got a nominal release in the U.S. in late 2007 and thus avoided the dreaded STV (straight to video) label. The book is tight and unmarked; spine cocked; spine ends bumped. The dust jacket is not price-clipped (original price $19.95); some edgewear, soiling, age-darkening. Brodart protected.

About this title

Synopsis:

This title follows the story of young William Harding, who unexpectedly finds himself falling for Sarah and, in three short months, feels the joy of first love and the heartache left behind when it ends.

Review:

Yes, it's "that" Ethan Hawke. Ethan Hawke the actor. In this slim debut novel, he tells a coming-of-age tale of a fairly unpleasant young actor from Texas named William who lives in Manhattan and is working his way through an ugly little relationship with a singer/songwriter named Sarah. William's parents married young and split up early and he's not too happy with the world at large. Sarah can't quite make heads or tails of her mother. The pair has sex in the bathroom and talks quite a bit about their relationship. It all has a certain ring of truth, but at this point it's probably safe to say that Hawke's movie agent will probably make a better living off the young actor/writer than Hawke's literary agent.
