About this Item: New York City, NY: Grove Weidenfeld, 1989. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 241 pages. Published in 1989. The author's third 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 Bharati Mukherjee's "Jasmine". Her third novel, written right after her breakthrough, award-winning collection, "The Middleman And Other Stories" (1988). In many ways, it is Mukherjee's greatest triumph, a tough-minded narrative about the nearly overwhelming violence that migrants flee from at Home and then must face Abroad, the lyrical writing shaken by the violence that the heroine almost casually recounts. "Relates both the odyssey and the metamorphosis of a young immigrant from rural India. Her story is shocking: The violence of the rape that greets her on her first night in America is certainly no greater than that of the crazed Sikh extremists who made her a widow at age 17 in India. Yet neither the character nor her story is held back by this violence. Still only in her early twenties, Jaze takes off to pursue her own version of the American Dream" (Mary Margaret Benson). It is not an exaggeration to say that Mukherjee is the crucial "figure in the middle", that is to say, the central figure who continues and transmutes the work of the pioneering R. K. Narayan, and helps smooth the way for the present generation of young Indian writers in English like Jhumpa Lahiri and Kiran Desai. Mukherjee not only anticipates but fully embodies many of their concerns, and remains an influential force in immigrant-American literature. An absolute "must-have" title for Bharati Mukherjee collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Bharati Mukherjee. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Mukherjee made an appearance at the Brooklyn Book Festival. Laid-in are pristine copies of the Festival's Souvenir Materials. This title is a late-modern 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: Many copies available online have major flaws or are remainder-marked. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1989 for "The Middleman And Other Stories". One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy.
