Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 280 pages. Published in 2005. The author's ninth novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. The dazzling DJ cover utilizes a reproduction of Chris Frazer Smith's color photograph, "Incorporates A Tree". Presents Ian McEwan's "Saturday". A "masterful novel set within a single day in February 2003". "Henry Perowne is a contented man. Outside the hospital, the world is not so easy or predictable. There is an impending war against Iraq, and a general darkening and gathering pessimism since the New York and Washington attacks two years before. On this particular Saturday morning, Perowne's day moves from the ordinary to the extraordinary" (Publisher's blurb). "McEwan is one of the finest literary storytellers alive. He implants in the memory a living, flaming presence" (The New Republic). An absolute "must-have" title for Ian McEwan collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Ian McEwan. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. 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. Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award in 1976 for "First Love, Last Rites". Winner of the Booker Prize in 1998 for "Amsterdam". Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2002 for "Atonement". One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER IAN MCEWAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0224072994.
