Title: By Morrison, Toni Home First Edition ...
Book Condition: Good
Book Description New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2012. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 145 pages. Published in 2012. The author's tenth novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly copies that are signed on a tipped-in page. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Toni Morrison's "Home". Another novel that is as spare as her two previous novels, "Love" (2003), and "A Mercy" (2008), the work of a novelist who has arrived at the highest level of her art: Poetic compression of the novel, a sprawling narrative form. "Morrison has rediscovered an urgent, poetic voice that enables her to move back and forth with immediacy and ease between the worlds of history and myth, between ordinary daily life and the realm of fable" (The New York Times). An absolute "must-have" title for Toni Morrison collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Toni Morrison. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as most copies available online are. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few 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. Please note: Signed Toni Morrisons escalate in value rapidly. This will be no exception. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1977, the Pulitzer Prize in 1988, and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1993. Toni Morrison's "Beloved" was selected by The New York Times panel of writers, editors, and critics as the most important work of American fiction of the last 25 years. Recipient of the Presidential Medal of Honor in 2012. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER TONI MORRISON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0307594165. Signed by Author.
