1st Printing. Signed. 385 pages. Published in 2003. The author's second novel to be translated into English. One of the greatest novels of our time. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. 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. The book is very beautifully produced, with cloth boards, an evocative DJ design by Vaughn Andrews, and printed on thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Presents Antonio Munoz Molina's "Sefarad" in a definitive English translation. "A magnificent novel about the iniquity and horror of fanaticism, and especially the human being's indestructible spirit" (Mario Vargas Llosa). "If Balzac wrote 'The Human Comedy' , Munoz Molina has written the adventure of exile, solitude, and memory" (Arturo Perez-Reverte). An absolute "must-have" title for Antonio Munoz Molina and contemporary literature collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and dated in black pen on the title page by the author: "A. Munoz Molina New York December 2, 2004". The author made a very rare NYC appearance during which his signature was obtained. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the event's Souvenir Program. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, placed, and dated copy of the First American Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Antonio Munoz Molina's "Sepharad" is regarded by Mario Vargas Llosa, Arturo Perez-Reverte, and Daniel Mendelsohn, the most brilliant American critic of his generation, as a masterpiece. One of the greatest novelists of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ANTONIO MUNOZ MOLINA AND ROBERTO BOLANO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0151009015. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: From one of Spain's most celebrated writers, an extraordinary, inspired book-at once fiction, history, and memoir-that draws on the Sephardic diaspora, the Holocaust, and Stalin's purges to tell a twentieth-century story.
Shifting seamlessly from the past to the present and following the routes of escape across countries and continents, Muņoz Molina evokes people real and imagined who come together in a richly allusive pattern-from Eugenia Ginsburg to Grete Buber-Neumann, the one on a train to the gulag, the other to a Nazi concentration camp; from a shoemaker and a nun who become lovers in a small town in Spain to Primo Levi bound for Auschwitz. And others-some well known, others unknown-all voices of separation, nostalgia, love, and endless waiting.
Written with clarity of vision and passion, in a style both lyrical and accessible, Sepharad makes the experience our own.
A brilliant achievement.
