1st Printing. Signed. 315 pages. Published in 2014. The author's second novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The First Hardcover 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. Presents Yiyun Li's "Kinder Than Solitude". Her beautifully titled and written second novel. Yiyun Li's subject, "weight", is the largest one in literature: The weight of Time, History, Place, and Fate. "Her observations of modern life are penetrating and moving. She has rendered, with freshness, the rich tapestry of global Chinese life in all its complexity and angst" (Bookmarks Magazine). "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 blue ink-pen on the title page by Yiyun Li. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This comes with a pristine copy of the Souvenir Material of the event during which her signature was obtained. This title will become 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.
