Wuori, G. K. . AN AMERICAN OUTRAGE: QUILLIFARKEAG, MAINE. Chapel Hill, NC: Algonquin Books, 2000. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 250 pages. As New/As New.

The author's debut novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "Over the course of 250 pages, the narrator carefully pieces together the details of what happened one afternoon at St. Antoine du Plupart and, just as importantly, what happened afterwards. Being from Maine, the narrator takes his time. He has other things to do and other stories to tell, but in the end every detail about what is truly an American outrage is told. G. K. Wuori has a wonderful way with language and a heartfelt affection for the place about which he writes" (Otto Penzler). A "must-have" title for G. K. Wuori collectors. This copy is prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by G. K. Wuori. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for some time even though it went into subsequent printing. This is one of relatively 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. (SEE ALSO OTHER G. K. WUORI TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1565122925. $30.00
