Auster, Paul. SMOKE & BLUE IN THE FACE: TWO FILMS. New York City, NY: Hyperion Books, 1995. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 290 pages. As New.

The author's debut collection of screenplays. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Paul Auster. Film stills from the finished films. Without DJ, as issued. Auster's screenplays were both made into fine films by Wayne Wang. "Life is both tragic and funny, both absurd and profoundly meaningful. I've tried to embrace this double aspect of experience in the stories I've written, both novels and screenplays" (Paul Auster). A major cinematic and literary achievement, this is a "must-have" title for Paul Auster completists. This title has been out-of-print for a very long time and is now collectible. This is one of relatively few copies of the true First Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the finest living American writers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PAUL AUSTER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0786880988. $20.00
