Smith, April. NORTH OF MONTANA. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1994. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 293 pages. As New/As New.

The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most important literary debuts of the last decade of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "Smith has produced a crime thriller distinguished by an unflagging pace, authoritative use of detail, and an appealing heroine. In vigorous, literate prose, Smith delivers characters of depth and dimension who inhabit the wildly diverse worlds of Southern California, each rendered with a cinematic eye. Wisely leaving some ends untied, Smith resolves the central themes of this seamless narrative in this smashing story" (Publishers Weekly). An astonishingly assured debut. A "must-have" title for April Smith collectors. This copy is neatly and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by April Smith. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time even though it went into subsequent printing. 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 most talented living American novelists. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER APRIL SMITH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0679431977. $40.00
