Danticat, Edwidge. KRIK? KRAK! . New York City, NY: Soho Press, 1995. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 224 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The author's debut collection of short stories. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Presents nine wonderful stories that have strengthened Edwidge Danticat's stature and fulfilled the promise that was evident in her debut novel. A writer of limpid, luminous, and often achingly poetic prose, Danticat is The Real Thing: A writer without a "message" but with a sensibility, mastery of the English language, and acute powers of observation and insight distinctly her own. A "must-have" title for Edwidge Danticat collectors. This presentation copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated, and inscribed in black pen on the title page by the author: "Krik? Krak! To you. Feel better soon. Edwidge Danticat. 5/2/96". The recipient is named. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time and is now collectible. This is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty, the best signed copy we have ever seen. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. Winner of the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Foundation Grant in 1998 for "The Farming of Bones". Finalist for the National Book Award in 2007 for "Brother, I'm Dying". Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of the "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". Winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant in 2009. One of the most brilliant living American writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EDWIDGE DANTICAT TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
