Text by Jess Walter. Without DJ, as issued. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Jess Walter's "The Zero". A literary thriller about 9/11 that does not even once mention the event. "Does the smartest thing he could have done: He doesn't mention 9/11 by name nor does he mention the World Trade Center or any other important person, place or thing having to do with that day. And yet we know exactly who's who and what's what. The book's title is a reference to Ground Zero, but by stripping away the word 'ground', he makes the place both fresh and nightmarish all over again. Walter builds the hellish aftermath from scratch, transforming that day into a page-turner with powerful social commentary about the marketing of a tragedy and the endless ways in which some people have profited by it" (The Washington Post). An absolute "must-have" title for Jess Walter collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Jess Walter. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Advance Reader's Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Finalist for the National Book Award in 2006 for "The Zero". One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER COPY OF THIS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG).
