1st Printing. Signed. 319 pages. Published in 2000. The author's second novel. One of April Smith's finest achievements. Uncorrected Proof/Advance Reader's Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a tiny print run as a softcover original only for the exclusive use of the publisher and author. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on cover and spine, as issued. Text by April Smith. Without DJ, as issued. Presents April Smith's "Be The One". Fulfills the great promise April Smith showed with her debut novel. "Smith's characters are sharply drawn, and she is firmly in command of her milieu: The day-to-day life of a baseball scout is brilliantly explicated, the pacing is expert, and the back-stories are well told in flashback. Cassidy is a fascinating woman: Hard-working, hard-drinking, and wholly human and vulnerable. Even if you're not a baseball fan, you'll root for her to win" (Jane Adams). An absolute "must-have" title for April Smith collectors. This copy of the Uncorrected Proof/Advance Reader's Edition is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by April Smith. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the Uncorrected Proof 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 novelists of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER APRIL SMITH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 10519
