Strout, Elizabeth. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. New York City, NY: Random House, 2017. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 260 pages. As New/As New.

The author's sixth 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, particularly copies that are signed on a tipped-in page. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. Presents Elizabeth Strout's "Anything Is Possible". The sequel-of-sorts to "My Name Is Lucy Barton" (2016), originally conceived and beautifully realized as such by the beloved author. "When Elizabeth Strout is on her game, is there anybody better? A generous, wry book about everyday lives, and Strout crawls so far inside her characters you feel you inhabit them. A book that earns its title. Try reading it without tears or wonder" (USA Today). "She paints cumulative portraits of the heartache and soul of small-town America by giving each of her characters a turn under her sympathetic spotlight" (National Public Radio). An absolute "must-have" title for Elizabeth Strout collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and dated (on the day of publication) in black ink-pen on the title page by the author: "Elizabeth Strout 4.25.17 NYC". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as many copies available online are. Strout also signed her name in full instead of her abbreviated signature (although the latter is still clear and legible when compared with those of most other authors'). It comes with a pristine copy of the Souvenir Announcement of the launch event during which her signature was obtained. This title is a national bestseller, and will become a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, placed, and publication-day dated copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2009 for "Olive Kitteridge". One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy.
