1st Printing. Signed. 256 pages. Published in 2011. Posthumous publication of the author's unpublished novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. Published in a small and limited one-time-only print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Magazine Issue is now rare. Presents the first installment of Roberto Bolano's "El Tercer Reich" in a felicitous English translation. The "serial novel" idea so beloved by the author (he talked and wrote about it incessantly), finally realized with this landmark publication. Following his wishes, the heirs of Roberto Bolano agreed to publish his novel in four consecutive installments of The Paris Review. Edited by Lorin Stein, the Paris Review Editor-in-Chief and Bolano's FSG editor/champion, translated by Natasha Wimmer, and supplemented with original drawings by Leann Shapton, one of which graces the cover, the 70-page first installment of "The Third Reich" dazzles. "El Tercer Reich" was discovered among Bolano's papers in 2009. He wrote it in 1989, but never published it in his lifetime. Why he did not will remain a mystery because it is "vintage/quintessential" Bolano. "From the first sentence, the novel bears his hallmarks. The irony, the atmosphere of erotic anxiety, the dream logic shading into nightmare, the feckless, unreliable narrator; all prefigure his later work. The young novelist must have been exhilarated, and possibly alarmed, to discover his talent so fully formed. Our first serialized novel since Harry Mathews' 'The Sinking of The Odradek Stadium' forty years ago" (Lorin Stein). The Issue also includes other valuable work: An original piece, "Emission", by Joshua Cohen, Interviews with Ann Beattie and Janet Malcolm, and a Portfolio of original art by various contributors. An absolute "must-have" title for Roberto Bolano collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen by Roberto Bolano's great translator, Natasha Wimmer. It is also very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen on his Contribution, "Emission", by Joshua Cohen. The Paris Review celebrated the Issue's release with a one-time-only signing in New York City during which event their signatures were obtained. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERTO BOLANO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 16437
