About this Item: New York City, NY: Houghton Mifflin, 2006. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 182 pages. Published in 2006. The author's twenty-fourth novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. 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 Philip Roth's "Everyman". The first in Philip Roth's "Nemeses" cycle of short novels, which includes "Indignation" (2008), "The Humbling" (2009), and "Nemesis" (2010). "A slim but dense volume about a sickly boy who grows up obsessed with his and everybody else's health, and eventually dies in his 70's, just as he always said he would. It might remind you of the old joke about the hypochondriac who ordered his tombstone to read: 'I told you I was sick'. Through it all, there's that Roth-ian voice: Pained, angry, arrogant, and deeply, wryly funny. Nothing escapes him, not even his own self-seriousness" (Sara Nelson). When asked why he is so prolific, Roth famously replied, "I am a writer. I write". He echoes this artisanal ethic beautifully in the book: "Amateurs look for inspiration. The rest of us just get up and go to work" (Philip Roth). Philip Roth died on May 22, 2018 of congestive heart failure, literally of heartbreak, at the age of 85. An absolute "must-have" title for Philip Roth collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Philip Roth. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. 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. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Six of Philip Roth's novels were selected as among the Top 20 works of American fiction of the last 25 years: "American Pastoral", "The Counterlife", "Operation Shylock", "Sabbath's Theater", "The Human Stain", and "The Plot Against America". One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PHILIP ROTH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 061873516X. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 17937

About this Item: New York City, NY: The Library Of America, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 470 pages. Published in 2013. Volume Nine of The Library of America's definitive Collected Works of Philip Roth. 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. Printed to the highest standards on acid-free paper, utilizing sewn binding, closely woven rayon cloth boards, satin bound-in ribbon marker, and a page layout that is both readable and elegant, each volume is guaranteed to last for several generations of readers and collectors (despite frequent and regular use, the estimated life span of Library of America Editions is 1000 years; un-used, they will last forever). Presents Volume Nine of The Collected Works of Philip Roth: "Everyman", "Indignation", "The Humbling", and "Nemesis". Brings together, in one handsome volume, the "Nemeses" Quartet. "What kind of choices fatally shape a life? How does the individual withstand the onslaught of circumstance? These are the dark questions that animate 'Nemeses', four thematically related novels: 'Everyman' (2006) is the sparse and affecting story of one man's lifelong skirmish with mortality. Set against the backdrop of the Korean War, 'Indignation' (2008) is the extraordinary narrative of a young man struggling against the conformity of McCarthy-era America and his father's overwhelming fear. In 'The Humbling' (2009), aging actor Simon Axler embarks on a risky and aberrant affair. And in 'Nemesis' (2010), Roth offers an exacting portrait of the emotions bred by a polio epidemic in Newark in the Summer of 1944" (Publisher's blurb). "One knows when one is reading something that will permanently enter the culture" (Cynthia Ozick). "Our foremost novelist since Faulkner" (Harold Bloom). Philip Roth was only the third writer to be so honored by The Library of America while still alive. Published in chronological order, the entire oeuvre consists of ten volumes in all and will surely be regarded as one of the "high spots" in The Library of America Series. Roth famously announced in 2012 that he has permanently stopped writing. Philip Roth died on May 22, 2018 of congestive heart failure, literally of heartbreak, at the age of 85. An absolute "must-have" title for Philip Roth collectors. This copy of Volume Nine is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Philip Roth. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First "Library of America" Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, have the bookstore's stamp, or are subsequent printings yet command hundreds of dollars. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Six of Philip Roth's novels were selected as among the Top 20 works of American fiction of the last 25 years: "American Pastoral", "The Counterlife", "Operation Shylock", "Sabbath's Theater", "The Human Stain", and "The Plot Against America". One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PHILIP ROTH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1598531999. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 18652
