The author's second novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. Advance Reader's Edition. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Edwidge Danticat. Without DJ, as issued. 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 book of lyrical beauty, this is a "must-have" edition for Edwidge Danticat completists. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Edwidge Danticat. This is one of few signed copies of the Advance Reader's Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce 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 flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EDWIDGE DANTICAT TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1569471266. $50.00
