Molina, Antonio Munoz (Translated by Margaret Sayers Peden). SEPHARAD: A NOVEL. New York City, NY: Harcourt Books, 2003. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 385 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's second novel to be translated into English. One of the greatest novels of our time. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The book is very beautifully produced, with cloth boards, an evocative DJ design by Vaughn Andrews, and printed on thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Presents Antonio Munoz Molina's "Sefarad" in a definitive English translation. "A magnificent novel about the iniquity and horror of fanaticism, and especially the human being's indestructible spirit" (Mario Vargas Llosa). "If Balzac wrote 'The Human Comedy' , Munoz Molina has written the adventure of exile, solitude, and memory" (Arturo Perez-Reverte). An absolute "must-have" title for Antonio Munoz Molina and contemporary literature collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and dated in black pen on the title page by the author: "A. Munoz Molina New York December 2, 2004". The author made a very rare NYC appearance during which his signature was obtained. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the event's Souvenir Program. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, placed, and dated copy of the First American Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A very rare signed copy thus. Antonio Munoz Molina's "Sepharad" is regarded by Mario Vargas Llosa, Arturo Perez-Reverte, and Daniel Mendelsohn, the most brilliant American critic of his generation, as a masterpiece. One of the greatest living novelists. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ANTONIO MUNOZ MOLINA AND ROBERTO BOLANO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0151009015. $300.00
