Frazier, Charles. NIGHTWOODS. New York City, NY: Random House, 2011. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 260 pages. As New/As New.

The author's third novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly copies that are signed on the publisher's tipped-in page. Presents Charles Frazier's "return with a dazzling new novel of suspense and love set in small-town North Carolina in the early 1960's". Masterfully fusing two great genres, the historical novel and the love story, Frazier is the authentic and wildly romantic voice of contemporary American fiction: "With pristine prose that is often wry, Frazier brings the past magnificently to life and recounts a romance rife with sadness" (Publisher's blurb). A "must-have" title for Charles Frazier collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed and dated (very shortly after publication) in black ink-pen on the title page by the author: "Charles Frazier 10-11-11". It is signed and dated directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as signed copies from the publisher are. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and dated copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of The National Book Award in 1998 for "Cold Mountain". One of the finest living American writers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CHARLES FRAZIER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
