Text by Robert Olen Butler. Matching blue slipcase. Printed on archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in a beautiful Limited Edition collectible format, Robert Olen Butler's "They Whisper". Details the rich, erotic life of Ira Holloway, an ordinary 40-year-old guy. "The most interesting aspect is the stream-of-consciousness 'I' of Ira that becomes the 'I' of various women, yielding a novel told from many points-of-view. Butler's women are vivid. Fiona emerges as his most significant other, becoming his wife and a mother to his son. She concludes the novel a la Molly Bloom, in a soliloquy to the spirituality of sex: She is in love with Jesus, a sexual Jesus. There are many such strange and marvelous passages in Butler's novel" (John Mort). An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Olen Butler collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Slipcased Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is very boldly and beautifully signed in red pen-marker by Robert Olen Butler. It is one of the most beautiful specimen-signatures by Robert Olen Butler we have ever seen. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Slipcased Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1993 for "A Good Scent From A Strange Mountain". One of the finest American writers of our time. A flawless collectible copy.
