Rushdie, Salman. HOME: THE "VINTAGE MINI" VOLUME. London, England: Vintage Books, 2017. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 90 pages. As New.

Retrospective collection of excerpts from the author's works. One of the most beautiful books on the literary art of Salman Rushdie. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent printings. Published in a small and limited first print run as a softcover original only and as part of the collectible "Vintage Minis" Series. There is no American Edition. Presents Salman Rushdie's "Home". His singular contribution to the "Vintage Minis" Series. Excerpts from "Shame", "Joseph Anton", "Imaginary Homelands", and "East, West" add up to a cumulative, new whole on the subject closest to Rushdie's heart. The idea behind the Series is quite simple and compelling: Excerpts from a writer's existing body of work, selected by him or her or if dead, the editors, and reproduced in a slim, handy volume are re-constituted around a timely and timeless subject: "Love" (Jeanette Winterson), "Desire" (Haruki Murakami), "Language" (Xialu Guo), "Race" (Toni Morrison), "Death" (Julian Barnes), "Fatherhood" (Karl Ove Knausgaard), and so, potentially and infinitely, on. It is as if every great writer's oeuvre could be summed up in one, resonant, and powerful word. Every writer featured is world-class and in the case of someone like Rushdie, canonical. An absolute "must-have" title for Salman Rushdie collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Salman Rushdie. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The book was issued as a softcover original only. There is NO American Edition. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1981 for "Midnight's Children", which was also selected as "The Booker of Bookers" in 1993, the best of all previous winners. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SALMAN RUSHDIE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1784872687. $40.00
