Hiaasen, Carl. NATURE GIRL. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2006. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 310 pages. As New/As New.

The author's eleventh novel. One of Carl Hiaasen's finest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a large first print run as a hardcover original only. Presents Carl Hiaasen's "Nature Girl". One of his funniest, that is, best novels. "Feels like a Shakespearean comedy, a mix of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and 'As You Like It', in which a group of confused lovers tangle with a gang of 'rude mechanicals' deep in the Forest of Arden. Here, Arden is one of the Ten Thousand Islands in the famous Florida Wilderness area. Our heroine, playing a variation on Rosalind, is a slightly screwy gal named Honey Santana, who possesses the tragic flaw of demanding 'more decency and consideration from her fellow humans than they demand of themselves'. That's a tall order when your fellow humans include a foul-smelling fishmonger who may be the world's most deranged stalker and a ne'er-do-well telephone solicitor who has the bad luck of calling Honey at the dinner hour. As funny as any thriller writer alive" (Bill Ott). An absolute "must-have" title for Carl Hiaasen collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Carl Hiaasen. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of 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. Please note: Many copies available online have serious flaws because they have been read over and over again. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CARL HIAASEN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0307262995. $30.00
