O'Nan, Stewart. EVERYDAY PEOPLE. New York City, NY: Grove Press, 2001. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 295 pages. As New/As New.

The author's sixth novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. The book is dedicated to John Edgar Wideman, one of the leading African-American writers of our time, and only O'Nan would dare write about the black experience from an outsider's perspective. "The protean O'Nan seems determined to touch nearly every facet of human experience in a remarkable variety of times and places. He has created distinctive, almost palpable worlds rich in moral complexities. O'Nan's empathy for his characters conveys their sense of frustration and powerlessness, the restlessness of teenagers and the older generations' stoic dignity" (Publishers Weekly). A "must-have" title for Stewart O'Nan collectors. This copy is prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Stewart O'Nan. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a long time. This is one of few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest living American writers. A flawless copy. . ISBN 0802116817. $50.00
