Jacobson, Howard. J. London, England: Jonathan Cape, 2014. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 327 pages. As New/As New.

The author's fourteenth 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. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Howard Jacobson's "J". "A snarling, effervescent, and ambitious philosophical work of fiction that poses unsettling questions about our sense of history, and our self-satisfied orthodoxies. Jacobson's triumph is to craft a novel that is poignant as well as troubling from the debris" (The Independent). "A real giant. A great, great writer" (Jonathan Safran Foer). An absolute "must-have" title for Howard Jacobson collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, placed, and dated (one month before the Booker Prize) in black pen on the title page by the author: "Howard Jacobson London 14-9-2014". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It comes with a pristine copy of the Souvenir Program of the event during which his signature was obtained. This title will become a contemporary classic. This is one of very few 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. Please note that this British Edition significantly precedes the American. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Booker Prize in 2010 for "The Finkler Question". Finalist for the Booker Prize in 2014 for "J". One of the greatest living novelists. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 0553419552. $150.00
