Leavitt, David. EQUAL AFFECTIONS. New York City, NY: Weidenfeld & Nicholson, 1989. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 268 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's second novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Written with poise, insight, and passion, this is an intimate portrait of a family struggling to come to terms with the death of its independent, defiant matriarch. Leavitt explores the complex emotions that make up human relationships between lovers and families. "Leavitt is able to demonstrate his talent for empathy, his ability to write persuasively about highly emotional issues" (The New York Times). A "must-have" title for David Leavitt collectors. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time even though it went into multiple subsequent printings and is now collectible. This is one of relatively few copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the finest living American writers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID LEAVITT TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 155584202X. $20.00
