Pelecanos, George P. . THE SWEET FOREVER. New York City, NY: Little, Brown & Company, 1998. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 300 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's seventh novel. The "Signed First Edition". Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "Autographed Copy" sticker pasted on DJ cover. Pelecanos' novels are set in Washington, DC, prompting his most ardent followers to call him the Emile Zola of the nation's capital. The present narrative involves $25, 000 stolen from a drug dealer, several children in peril, smart adults who screw up their lives in stupid ways, and the speed with which violence festers and explodes in unexpected directions. "Pelecanos is that rare bird among Washington novelists, a writer who loves and knows the city he writes about" (Publishers Weekly). One of about five living American thriller writers who completely inhabit and transcend the genre at the same time. A "must-have" title for George P. Pelecanos collectors. This copy is prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen on the publisher's tipped-in page by George P. Pelecanos. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a long time. This is one of few copies of the Signed First Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest living American writers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GEORGE P. PELECANOS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0316691097. $70.00
