Auster, Paul. LULU ON THE BRIDGE. New York City, NY: Henry Holt And Company, 1998. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 219 pages. As New.

The author's screenplay of his directorial film debut. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the edition published by ACTES Sud. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Paul Auster. Black-and-white stills from the finished film. Without DJ, as issued. Presents an unusual twist to the classic, tragic love story. The film stars Harvey Keitel and Mira Sorvino, two of America's finest actors. The screenplay alludes repeatedly to the classic silent film, which is reenacted in part in the picture. "Life is both tragic and funny, both absurd and profoundly meaningful. I've tried to embrace this double aspect of experience in the stories I've written, both novels and screenplays" (Paul Auster). A tantalizing re-creation of a modern masterpiece, this is a "must-have" title for Paul Auster completists. This title remains available in multiple subsequent printings and is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the true First Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the finest living American writers. A flawless copy.
