Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 427 pages. Published in 2015. The author's second novel. Claire North's best book thus far. 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 British and American Editions were issued simultaneously. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Claire North's "Touch". One of the most electrifying (and creepiest) thriller-novels of our time. "Dying after being viciously beaten by a vagrant in a dark alley, Kepler discovers he can jump into another person's body with just a touch and sets out on a mission of vengeance" (Publisher's blurb). "A brilliantly balanced knife's edge of a book: Fast-paced and thrilling, it's somehow also languorous, thoughtful, and intelligent. Kepler is a thoroughly absorbing and sympathetic anti-hero, trying to minimize harm while striving for survival" (NPR). "Beyond genius. One of THE books of 2015" (Bite The Book). "Touch" was selected as one of The Best Books of The Year 2015 by The Washington Post. Claire North is the pseudonym of Catherine Webb. Her breakthrough debut, "The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August" (2014), was a critically-acclaimed bestseller. Here is her sensational follow-up, and it is even better. An absolute "must-have" title for Claire North collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed, inscribed ("lined"), and dated (two days after publication) in metallic-green pen-marker on the title page by the author: " 'I am Kepler. I am love. I am you'. Claire North 26/2/15". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The hymnal inscription is the last three lines of the novel. This title will become a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, inscribed ("lined"), and dated copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (British) available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The British and American Editions were issued simultaneously. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant living novelists. A fine copy. ISBN 0316335924. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Touch is the electrifying new thriller from the author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.

He tried to take my life. Instead, I took his.
It was a long time ago. I remember it was dark, and I didn't see my killer until it was too late. As I died, my hand touched his. That's when the first switch took place.
Suddenly, I was looking through the eyes of my killer, and I was watching myself die.
Now switching is easy. I can jump from body to body, have any life, be anyone.
Some people touch lives. Others take them. I do both.

About the Author: Claire North is a pseudonym for Catherine Webb, a Carnegie Medal-nominated author whose first book was written when she was just fourteen years old. She went on to write several other novels in various genres, before publishing her first major work as Claire North, The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, in 2014. It was a critically acclaimed success, receiving rave reviews and an Audie nomination, and was included in the Washington Post's Best Books of the Year list. Her most recent novel, Touch, was also in the Washington Post's Best Books of the Year, in 2015.
