Hawkins, Paula. INTO THE WATER. London, England: Transworld Publishers Ltd. , 2017. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 360 pages. As New/As New.

The author's second novel. One of the most eagerly anticipated 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 large first print run as a hardcover original only and on a global basis. Presents Paula Hawkins' "Into The Water". An ambitious, multi-layered, and multi-voiced (eleven narrators by our count; other readers claim even more), with historical echoes to boot. At the very least, Hawkins deserves credit for leveraging her phenomenal success by writing something different and daring that (complacent) readers may find too demanding. "With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world, delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present" (Publisher's blurb). The basis of the Hollywood film adaptation in 2018, which adaptation bears watching. An absolute "must-have" title for Paula Hawkins collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, dated (three days after publication), and inscribed ("lined") in black pen-marker on the title page by the author: "Again! Again! 5 May 2017 Paula Hawkins". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as most copies available online are. The inscription is the opening line of the novel. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few such signed, dated, and inscribed ("lined") copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (British) still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The book was published simultaneously on a global basis. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant British novelists in the thriller genre of our time. A fine copy.
