Krauss, Nicole. GREAT HOUSE: A NOVEL. New York City, NY: W. W. Norton & Company, 2010. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 290 pages. As New/As New.

The author's third novel. One of the most important literary events of the decade. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Presents Nicole Krauss' third novel, her first since the critically acclaimed "The History of Love" (2005). The novel tells not one but several narratives that are unrelated to each other but are tied together by and revolve around a physical object, a writing desk. Krauss uses the desk as a metaphor for destruction, loss, and recovery through memory. With "The History of Love", Nicole Krauss "strides into the forefront of American letters" (Susan Sontag). "Great House", a "soaring, powerful novel about memory struggling to create a meaningful permanence in the face of inevitable loss", confirms that she will stay there. A "must-have" title for Nicole Krauss collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Nicole Krauss. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title will become as collectible as Nicole Krauss' other books. This is one of few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant new voices in American literature. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER NICOLE KRAUSS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0393079988. $50.00
