The author's debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts 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 Rachel Kushner's "Telex From Cuba". An ambitious and brilliant first novel. "An astonishingly wise and riveting novel set in the American community in Cuba during the years leading up to Castro's revolution, a place that was a paradise for a time and for a few. The first novel to tell the story of the Americans who were driven out of Cuba in 1958, this is a masterful debut" (Publisher's blurb). "One of the most brilliant writers of the new century" (Robert Stone). An absolute "must-have" title for Rachel Kushner collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Rachel Kushner. It is signed directly on the pge itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Material of the event during which her signature was obtained. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed 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 rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant new voices in American literature. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER RACHEL KUSHNER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 141656103X. $80.00
