Rare Paul Auster, Don DeLillo, Rajesh Parameswaran, and Granta Magazine collectible item. A pristine copy of the Granta Magazine #117 Autumn 2011 Issue, signed by all three authors. "Autographed Copy" round green sticker pasted in front. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Contributions by various authors, a Who's Who of contemporary literature headlined by Paul Auster, Don DeLillo, Stephen King, and Rajesh Parameswaran. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents "Granta Magazine Issue #117: Horror". A landmark Issue, devoted to the horror genre. "It haunts us; it stalks us; it shapes us. It creeps into our dreams and if we allow it, can plague our ponderings of the future. The same monsters that lived under our childhood beds can reappear, alive and toothsome, in our adult lives. And perhaps most frightening of all: Without reason or apology, one person's fancy is another person's torment. Granta 117 takes a stab at understanding the phenomenon that is horror. Stephen King writes of a retired judge who pays repeated visits to a patch of sand capable of predicting human mortality. Don DeLillo climbs into the head of a moviegoer-turned-stalker. Joy Williams writes of a father with a grown son even stranger and less stable than he suspects. Rajesh Parameswaran presents us with a tiger who narrates its own escape from a zoo and its subsequent terrorizing of a neighborhood while Daniel Alarcon explores the phenomenon of staged, high-camp blood baths" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Paul Auster, Don DeLillo, Rajesh Parameswaran, and horror-genre collectors. This Autographed Copy of the Magazine Issue is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on their respective Contributions by Paul Auster, Don DeLillo, and Rajesh Parameswaran. They signed on the pages themselves, not on a tipped-in page. The authors, who are close friends, made a one-time-only appearance in New York City to launch the Issue. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such multi-signed copy of the Granta Magazine Issue available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: We are not aware of any other title in which Auster's and DeLillo's signatures appear together in the same volume. A rare signed copy thus. Some of the most brilliant living writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PAUL AUSTER AND DON DELILLO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1905881363. $80.00
