THE MYSTERIES OF PITTSBURGH: THE UNCORRECTED PROOF - Rare Fine Copy of The Advance Reader's Copy/Uncorrected Proof: Signed by Michael Chabon
1st Printing. Signed. 287 pages. Published in 1988. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. Advance Reader's Copy/Uncorrected Proof. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a tiny print run as a softcover original only. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Michael Chabon. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Michael Chabon's "The Mysteries of Pittsburgh". A national (and international) bestseller, it immediately established the very young author as a major new voice in American literature. A "coming-of-age" story, which seems inevitably and inescapably every young writer's subject, handled by Michael Chabon with grace and empathy, it demonstrates the author's immense talent, one that would be triumphantly fulfilled in his masterpiece, "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay". An absolute "must-have" title for Michael Chabon collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Michael Chabon. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Program, "Michael Chabon", issued to celebrate the publication of "The Yiddish Policemen's Union". The signature was obtained during the event. The Advance Reader's Copy/Uncorrected Proof was not sold commercially and distributed only to the trade. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the Advance Reader's Copy/Uncorrected Proof still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2000 for "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay". One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MICHAEL CHABON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 11873
