1st Printing. Signed. 570 pages. Published in 1993. The author's third novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. Advance Reader's Edition/Uncorrected Proof. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a tiny print run for the exclusive use of the published and author. As Uncorrected Proofs and ARC's go, it is very beautifully produced: Regular-sized volume format. The book is exactly the same size as a regular hardcover edition. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Richard Russo. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In publisher's original plastic wrappers. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Richard Russo's "Nobody's Fool". His breakthrough novel. Although his debut novel, "Mohawk", earned him a cult following and is now considered a classic, "Nobody's Fool" established Russo's reputation and has become one of his most popular books, matched, but not quite eclipsed, by "Empire Falls". "What makes Russo so admirable as a novelist is that his natural grace as a storyteller is matched by his compassion for his characters" (John Irving). The basis of the fine film by Robert Benton, with Paul Newman, Jessica Tandy (in her final film performance), Philip Seymour Hoffmann, and Melanie Griffith. An absolute "must-have" title for Richard Russo collectors. This copy of the Advance Reader's Edition/Uncorrected Proof is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Richard Russo. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the Advance Reader's Edition/Uncorrected Proof still available online, is still in the publisher's original plastic wrappers, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. It is, quite simply, the single most beautiful copy we have ever seen. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for "Empire Falls". One of the greatest living American writers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER RICHARD RUSSO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory #
