Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. Signed. 260 pages. Published in 1989. The author's breakthrough debut collection of short stories. One of the most important literary debuts of our time. 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 Allegra Goodman's "Total Immersion". Written when she was still a student at Harvard University. The eleven stories in this collection received lavish praise from such established writers as Cynthia Ozick, Max Apple, and Chaim Potok. Among other things, Goodman seems to have pulled off two major feats: Capture the unique culture of Hawaii, where many of the stories take place, and evoke the claustrophobic atmosphere of the Jewish community there, a microcosm of Jewish communities everywhere in America. "Allegra Goodman is brilliant, knowing, alive: A marvel. All the muse-fairies were present at her birth!" (Cynthia Ozick). An absolute "must-have" title for Allegra Goodman collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Allegra Goodman. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy.
