Guterson, David. EAST OF THE MOUNTAINS. New York City, NY: Harcourt Brace, 1999. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 279 pages. As New/As New. Signed.

The author's second novel. One of the most important literary events of the year 1999. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "A beautifully imagined work, in which the landscape reflects both the protagonist's desperation and his intermittent delight. And Guterson knows from the start what his protagonist learns in painful increments: That 'a neat, uncomplicated end' doesn't exist on either side of the mountains" (James Marcus). A "must-have" title for David Guterson collectors. This presentation copy is very boldly and beautifully signed and inscribed in black marker on the front free endpaper by the author. The recipient is named. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a long time and is now collectible. This is one of few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award in 1994 for "Snow Falling On Cedars". One of the finest living American writers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID GUTERSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
