Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 313 pages. Published in 2001. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most important literary debuts 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. The First Edition is now scarce. Julie Metz's evocative DJ design utilizes a blue-toned blurred photograph of a man on horseback by Garry Isaacs. Presents Leif Enger's "Peace Like A River". His sensational first novel. He had written (with his brother Lin) crime-thriller genre novels, and the influence of the genre is unmistakable in "Peace Like A River": "Once you begin 'Peace Like A River', you are carried away by the elemental surge of its story, the sheer eagerness to see what happens next to the engrossing characters. Enger has made their extraordinary world credible" (Jim Harrison). An absolute "must-have" title for Leif Enger collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Leif Enger. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of 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. One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LEIF ENGER TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 087113795X. Bookseller Inventory # 18569
