Russell, Karen. VAMPIRES IN THE LEMON GROVE: STORIES. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2013. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 248 pages. As New/As New.

The author's second collection of short stories. One of Karen Russell's finest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. Presents Karen Russell's second, and even more dazzling, collection of stories. "Russell's best book. With prose so alive it practically backflips off the page. Her invented worlds shed new light on the one in which we live" (Molly Antopol). An absolute "must-have" title for Karen Russell collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and dated (very shortly after publication) in black pen on the title page by the author: "Karen Russell 2.19.13". Russell signed on top of the page, making her signature stand out even more. This title is now collectible. This is one of few signed 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 as one of the "20 Writers Under 40" of the decade by The New Yorker Magazine. One of the most brilliant living American writers. A fine copy.
