Rushdie, Salman. TWO YEARS EIGHT MONTHS & TWENTY-EIGHT NIGHTS. London, England: Jonathan Cape, 2015. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 286 pages. As New/As New.

The author's twelfth novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The first appearance of the title in the United Kingdom. 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. In terms of production values, the British Edition is superior to the American in every respect, not the least being its more magical and vividly colorful DJ design. Presents Salman Rushdie's "Two Years Eight Months & Twenty-Eight Nights". The author's wicked, ironic version of the great epic, "Thousand And One Nights". "A spellbinding work of fiction that blends history, mythology, and a timeless love story. A lush, richly layered novel in which our world has been plunged into an age of un-reason" (Publisher's blurb). "Rushdie is our Scheherazade. His book is a fantasy, a fairy tale, and a brilliant reflection of and serious meditation on the choices and agonies of life in this world" (Ursula K. Le Guin). An absolute "must-have" title for Salman Rushdie collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the half-title page by Salman Rushdie. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Chicago Humanities Festival 2015 Souvenir Program during which event his signature was obtained. The Winner of its prestigious annual literary prize (for the novel), Rushdie delivered the Festival Keynote Address: "Citizen Artist: The Chicago Tribune Literary Award 2015". This title will become a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First British Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: In terms of production values, the British Edition is superior to the American in every respect, not the least being its more magical and vividly colorful DJ design. Copies available online command as much as $125. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1981 for "Midnight's Children", which was also selected as "The Booker of Bookers" in 1993, the best of all previous winners. One of the greatest living writers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SALMAN RUSHDIE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 081299891X. $50.00
