McCabe, Patrick. EMERALD GERMS OF IRELAND. New York City, NY: HarperCollins Publishers, 2001. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 306 pages. As New/As New. Signed.

The author's seventh novel. The first appearance of the title in the United States. One of the author's most brilliant, macabre, and dementedly funny works. "McCabe may well be the lodestone of Irish fiction" (New York Observer). A "must-have" title for Patrick McCabe collectors. This copy is prominently signed and dated (in the year of publication) in blue pen on the title page by the author: "March 14, 2001. Patrick McCabe". This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for some time. This is one of few signed copies of the First American Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Finalist of the Booker Prize in 1992 for "The Butcher Boy" and in 1998 for "Breakfast On Pluto". One of the finest living novelists. A flawless copy.
