Vollmann, William T. . THIRTEEN STORIES AND THIRTEEN EPITAPHS (A.K.A. "THIRTEEN STORIES AND THIRTEEN EPIGRAPHS") . London, England: Andre Deutsch, 1991. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 318 pages. As New/As New.

The author's second collection of short stories. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Also known in the United States as "Thirteen Stories and Thirteen Epigraphs". Probably the most controversial literary figure of his generation, William T. Vollmann is one of the most original and intelligent voices of contemporary American literature. An important achievement and indispensable title in the prolific author's oeuvre, this is a "must-have" title for William T. Vollmann collectors. 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 very scarce copy thus. Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". Nominated by the National Book Critics Circle Awards in 2003 for "Rising Up and Rising Down", his recent multi-volume history on violence. Winner of the National Book Award in 2005 for "Europe Central". One of the finest living American writers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER WILLIAM T. VOLLMANN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
