Chabon, Michael. TELEGRAPH AVENUE. New York City, NY: HarperCollins Publishers, 2012. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 465 pages. As New/As New.

The author's seventh 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 a tipped-in page. Presents Michael Chabon's "Telegraph Avenue", his most ambitious novel since "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay" (1999). "A genuinely moving story about race and class, parenting and marriage. Chabon is inarguably one of the greatest prose stylists of all time, powering out sentences that are the equivalent of executing a triple back flip on a bucking bull while juggling chain saws and making love to three women" (Esquire). Wow. An absolute "must-have" title for Michael Chabon collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and dated (very shortly after publication) in black pen-marker on the title page by the author: "9-19-12 NYC Michael Chabon". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Announcement of the event during which his signature was obtained. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few such signed, placed, and dated copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A very scarce signed copy thus. Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2000 for "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay". One of the finest living American writers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MICHAEL CHABON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
