1st Printing. Signed. 277 pages. Published in 1989. The author's second novel. One of Susanna Moore's finest achievements. 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 Susanna Moore's "The Whiteness of Bones". An utterly wonderful novel. "Magic that lures the reader with the seductions of passion and wit and then rewards him with the surprises that can only come when the home truths of human existence are disclosed through the eyes of a writer with a large and understanding heart" (The Washington Post). An absolute "must-have" title for Susanna Moore collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Susanna Moore. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It is one of Moore's most beautiful specimen-signatures we have ever seen: Clean, flowing, elegant. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the Pen/Ernest Hemingway Citation and The Sue Kaufman Prize from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SUSANNA MOORE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0385266464. Bookseller Inventory # 5343
