Bohjalian, Chris. THE LAW OF SIMILARS. New York City, NY: Harmony Books, 1999. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 275 pages. As New/As New. Signed.

The author's sixth 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. The sequel to his most beloved novel, "Midwives". Bohjalian is adept at examining social and moral issues fraught with ambiguities. Here, again, he focuses on a fallible protagonist whose lapse in ethical judgment is motivated by love and need. "Chris Bohjalian is an artist of the small but seismic instant. As this gripping novel proves, he knows all too well the awful daring of a moment's surrender" (Siobhan Carson). Bohjalian enjoys a cult following, deservedly so, as he is one of the most accomplished stylists writing today. He has often said that he would prefer to have a core group of passionate readers than a mass base. A "must-have" title for Chris Bohjalian collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Chris Bohjalian. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time and is now collectible. 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 finest living American writers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CHRIS BOHJALIAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0517705869. $20.00
