Printed on archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Marianne Wiggins' "Almost Heaven". At the time of his fatwa, now since officially "lifted" by Iran, Salman Rushdie was married to Marianne Wiggins, who acted as his intrepid and vital link to the outside world. A disciple of the great literary critic and cultural philosopher George Steiner, she has been championed by the influential Steiner as the brilliant writer that she truly is. An astonishing achievement. An absolute "must-have" title for Marianne Wiggins collectors. This copy of the Uncorrected Proof is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Marianne Wiggins. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the Uncorrected Proof still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant living American writers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MARIANNE WIGGINS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $30.00
