Westmoreland, Timothy A. . GOOD AS ANY. New York City, NY: Harcourt Inc. , 2002. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 275 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The author's debut collection of short stories. One of the most important literary debuts of the year 2002. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Evocative stories that reflect the austere beauty of their settings, the rural landscapes of New England and Texas. The protagonists are all male and have somehow been pushed to the margins, by illness, lack of love or both. Most of the characters must face a physical disability or illness, but the physical problems are really manifestations of emotional distress, the result of intense loneliness, and the craving for connection. This may sound painful and even depressing. In fact, it makes this collection one of the most powerful debuts of the year. A "must-have" title for Timothy A. Westmoreland collectors. This copy is prominently, elaborately, and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Timothy A. Westmoreland. He also crossed out his printed name with two wave-like strokes. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant new voices in American literature. A fine copy. . ISBN 0151008523. $40.00
