Only Revolutions : A Novel: A Set
A chance to own a rare set of two advanced reading copies. Unread. One copy was boldly signed and dated 'Oct. 22, 2006' by the author with a large gold 'Z' at the 'front' of Hailey's story on the 'you were there' page, and the other boldly signed and dated 'Oct. 22, 2006' by the author with a large green 'Z' at the 'front' of Sam's story on the 'you were there' page. A 2006 National Book Award nominee. Another unique book from the author of the cult literary/horror novel 'The House of Leaves'. The journey of two kids, Hailey and Sam, whose stories alternate in space and time as they race across the country. The book itself appears to have two covers, one gold, the other green. The green novel follows Sam's story from 1863 to 1963. Flip it over, and the novel with the gold cover tells Hailey's story that begins in 1963 ands ends in 2063. A sidebar on each page keeps the reader abreast of the historical events that occur as trhe novel(s) progress. The publisher recommends the reading of eight pages at a time from each story.

About this title:
They were with us before Romeo & Juliet. And long after too. Because they?re forever around. Or so both claim, carolling gleefully:
We?re allways sixteen.
Sam & Hailey, powered by an ever-rotating fleet of cars, from Model T to Lincoln Continental, career from the Civil War to the Cold War, barrelling down through the Appalachians, up the Mississippi River, across the Badlands, finally cutting a nation in half as they try to outrace History itself.
By turns beguiling and gripping, finally worldwrecking, Only Revolutions is unlike anything ever published before, a remarkable feat of heart and intellect, moving us with the journey of two kids, perpetually of summer, perpetually sixteen, who give up everything except each other.
They were with us before Tristan & Isolde. And long after too. Because they?re forever around. Or so both claim, gleefully carolling:
We?re allways sixteen.
Hailey & Sam, powered by an ever-rotating fleet of cars, from Shelby Mustang to Sumover Linx, careen from the Civil Rights Movement to the Iraq War, tearing down to New Orleans, up the Mississippi River, across Montana, finally cutting a nation in half as they try to outrace History itself.
By turns enticing and exhilarating, finally breathtaking, Only Revolutions is unlike anything ever conceived before, a remarkable feat of heart and intellect, moving us with the journey of two kids, perpetually of summer, perpetually sixteen, who give up everything except each other.
Review: Mark Danielewski's first novel House of Leaves is a cult-favorite--experimental horror fiction in a gorgeous (and newly remastered) full-color package. His new book Only Revolutions takes the experiment 10 steps further in a story about teenage lovers Hailey and Sam: the book is printed on two sides--one side tells the story from Hailey's point of view, flip it over and you get Sam's side (literally). We caught a glimpse inside the mind-bending new novel--take a look for yourself below.
