1st Printing. Signed. 267 pages. Published in 1993. Retrospective collection of the author's major writings. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no British Edition. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Vintage Books: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers, as issued. Text by Neil Jordan. Without DJ, as issued. Presents "A Neil Jordan Reader". The best single-volume introduction to the work of a writer who is much better-known as a film director. Includes selections from "Nights In Tunisia", his collection of short stories, and the complete texts of the "The Dream of a Beast", a novella, and the "The Crying Game", the screenplay. Neil Jordan is the renowned director of such films as "Mona Lisa", "Interview with the Vampire", "The End of the Affair", and "The Crying Game", for which he won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 1993. He is also an immensely talented and rewarding writer whose impeccable instinct for form and structure and whose profound psychological insight (put to such effective use in his rich, complex films) are just as evident in his novels, "The Past", "The Dream of A Beast", and "Sunrise With Sea Monster" (called "Nightlines" in the United States), and the brilliant short story collection, "Nights in Tunisia". An absolute "must-have" title for Neil Jordan collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Neil Jordan. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It comes with a brand-new copy of the DVD of "The Crying Game", also very boldly and beautifully signed in metallic-silver pen-marker on the front cover by Neil Jordan. As far as we know, this is the only such signed set available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. A rare signed set thus. One of the most brilliant writers of our time. A fine set. (SEE ALSO OTHER NEIL JORDAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0679748342. Bookseller Inventory # 7735
