Book Description Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., New York, 1989. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. First Edition. "The short story and novella published together for the first time in this volume are two of Cynthia Ozick's most widely admired (and anthologized) works of fiction. Exquisitely moving and powerful tales, each was originally published in The New Yorker. Both stories were included in the annual "Best American Short Stories" and awarded First Prize in the annual "O. Henry Prize Stories" collection. (AAK) " I would not hesitate to name Cynthia Ozick as one of the three greatest living American writers of short fiction"--William Abrahams. Book is fine. Only flaws are two very slight cuts to upper edge of back panel of DJ, else fine. Seller Inventory # 001734

Book Description New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1989. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 70 pages. Published in 1989. Landmark collection of the author's work. One of the finest American collections of the 20th century. 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. Presents Cynthia Ozick's "The Shawl: A Story And A Novella". The novella being "Rosa". Few contemporary writers have explored the subject of loneliness as well as personal - not just political/social - identity, which the author nevertheless views as inescapably linked with one's historical and ethnic roots. The tenderness of these masterpieces is quite unusual in Ozick's largely ironic body of work. She is writing in three literary traditions simultaneously, all of them at the most profound level imaginable: The ancient Jewish, the modern European, and the Jamesian American. Hence, the dazzling allusiveness, poignant beauty, and sheer intensity of her work. Her prose style - imbricated, brachiate, and filigreed, to borrow three of her own favorite words - is a paradox: The rush of metaphors arrives at and realizes a work of luminous beauty. An absolute "must-have" title for Cynthia Ozick collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Cynthia Ozick. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It comes with a pristine copy of "An Introduction To 'The Shawl' " Compact Disc (CD), the riveting audio guide issued by the National Endowment For The Arts (NEA) as part of its "The Big Read" Series. The CD features a reading and commentary by Cynthia Ozick, Elie Wiesel, and other luminaries. This title is a great collection. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy (with CD) of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. Please note: Ozick signed the book, not the CD. This copy is NOT price-clipped, has NO tears, soiling, or inscriptions whereas copies available online have serious flaws yet are priced as though they had collectible value. A rare set thus. Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 1996 for "Fame & Folly". Finalist for the National Book Award in 1997 for "The Puttermesser Papers". Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2001 for "Quarrel & Quandary". Recipient of the Lannan Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000. One of the greatest American writers of our time. A fine collectible set. (SEE ALSO OTHER CYNTHIA OZICK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0394579763. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 21813
