Presents three long short stories by one of our finest novelists, who is also a master short-storyteller, a rare achievement in literature. "These stories elevate Richard Ford to the small group of great living American storytellers. With great strength and tragic grace, Richard Ford will shoot an arrow through your heart" (The Denver Post). The title is an unmistakable allusion to Ernest Hemingway's classic collection, "Men Without Women". A "must-have" edition for Richard Ford collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is prominently and beautifully signed in black fountain pen by Richard Ford. This edition sold out upon publication and is now highly collectible. This is one of extremely few copies of the Limited Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Richard Ford's "Independence Day" was selected by The New York Times panel of writers, critics, and editors as one of the most important works of American fiction of the last 25 years. One of the finest American writers of the 20th century. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER RICHARD FORD TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0679454691. $150.00
