Smith, Peter Moore. RAVELING. New York City, NY: Little, Brown & Company, 2000. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 389 pages. As New/As New.

The author's breakthrough debut novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "The novel's strength lies in the deftness with which Peter Moore Smith captures Pilot's schizophrenia. The reader follows Pilot in each unsteady attempt to negotiate the ever-fluctuating boundary between reality and illusion. Weaves the fragile threads that bind families and selves into a tapestry that both cloaks its characters and leaves them starkly vulnerable" (Kelly Flynn). "Eyes closed, I was in a bed upstairs, my arms under the covers so they wouldn't float away. Outside the window a single branch was reaching toward the room, unfurling itself to tap against the glass, warning me" (Peter Moore Smith). A thrilling debut. A "must-have" title for Peter Moore Smith collectors. This copy is prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Peter Moore Smith. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for some time. 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 most talented living American mystery writers. A flawless copy. . ISBN 0316442178. $40.00
