Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 620 pages. Published in 2014. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United Kingdom. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the American Edition, which is a softcover original only. Published in a small and limited first print as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Joel Dicker's "The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair" in a felicitous English translation. A global bestseller, the Number One bestselling novel in Europe of the year. "A dazzling thriller: Stunningly original and brilliantly plotted, down to the very last twists. It's a murder mystery, a literary puzzle, and a love story, all ingeniously woven into a masterly novel of suspense. Joel Dicker is an enormous talent, and this book is extraordinary" (The New York Times). Joel Dicker is Swiss, but spent his childhood in the United States. So it's not surprising that his novel is set in New Hampshire and involves two generations of writers, one of whom is accused of murder. The success of his debut is the stuff of legend. An absolute "must-have" title for Joel Dicker collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, placed, and dated (on the day of publication) in black pen on the title page by the author: "Joel Dicker Bath 1 V 2014". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in are the Event Announcement Souvenir and the ticket stub of the event during which his signature was obtained. This title is now collectible, an instant classic. As far as we know, this is one of only two such signed, placed, and dated copies of the First British Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. It is, quite simply, the most beautiful signed copy we have ever seen. Please note: The American Edition is a cheaply produced paperback, and was released after the British Edition. There is no comparison between the beautiful, collectible British Edition and its American "reading copy" counterpart. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER COPIES OF THIS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0857053094. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis:

August 30, 1975. The day of the disappearance. The day Aurora, New Hampshire, lost its innocence.

That summer Harry Quebert fell in love with fifteen-year-old Nola Kellergan. Thirty-three years later, her body is dug up from his yard along with a manuscript copy of his career-defining novel. Quebert is the only suspect. Marcus Goldman-Quebert's most gifted protégé-throws off his writer's block to clear his mentor's name.

Solving the case and penning a new bestseller soon blur together. As his book begins to take on a life of its own, the nation is gripped by the mystery of "The Girl Who Touched the Heart of America".

But with Nola, in death as in life, nothing is ever as it seems. Joël Dicker's phenomenal European bestseller is a brilliantly intricate murder mystery, a hymn to the boundless reaches of the imagination, and a love story like no other. Nothing you've read or even felt before can prepare you for The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair.

Review:

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, May 2014: A successful young author suffering from writer?s block journeys to New Hampshire to visit his former professor. Shortly after he arrives, the bones of a girl are found buried in the professor?s backyard. Now the professor has been arrested for the murder of the girl--who disappeared in 1975 at the age of fifteen--and the author has an idea: he will write a book based on the case that will ultimately exonerate his professor and jumpstart his writing. Already a massive best seller in Europe (and translated into 32 languages), The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair arrives in North America amid such wild praise you might expect something groundbreaking. Instead, what you get is a wonderful, fun, and boisterous read, a book with an uncanny ability to both fascinate and amuse you. Twists and turns and oddball characters make this a rollicking bullet-train of a novel. --Chris Schluep
