Cunningham, Michael. A HOME AT THE END OF THE WORLD. New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1990. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 343 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's second novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. 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 First Edition is now scarce. Presents Michael Cunningham's sublime fable of a novel. "Novels don't come more deeply felt than Michael Cunningham's extraordinary four-character study. The writing is a constant pleasure, flowing and yet dense with incisive images and psychological nuance" (The Boston Globe). "The story of Jonathan, Clare, Bobby, and Alice is also the story of the 1970's and 1980's. It is destined to last" (David Leavitt). Michael Cunningham himself adapted his novel for the fine film version directed by Michael Mayer, with Colin Farrell, Robin Wright Penn, Sissy Spacek, and Dallas Roberts. An absolute "must-have" title for Michael Cunningham collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Michael Cunningham. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is a great book. This is one of few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Many copies available online have serious flaws. A scarce signed copy thus. "A Home At The End of The World" was selected as one of "The 200 Best Novels in English Since 1950" by The Modern Library, the most prestigious list of its kind for the period 1950-1999. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature and The Pen/Faulkner Award in 1999 for "The Hours". One of the finest living American writers. A fine copy.
