The author's second novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the "Today Book Club" edition, which is indicated as such with the show's logo on the DJ cover. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Andrew Sean Greer's "The Confessions of Max Tivoli". Genetic reversal: The story of a boy who is born looking like a 70-year-old man, but whose body grows younger and younger as he grows older. "Demonstrates that Greer can spin a touching narrative based on a fantastic, intriguing premise. The diligent reader will be surprised by the revelations twisting throughout the novel, and will probably turn back to the beginning pages to find the oblique hints hidden in Greer's crystalline prose" (Publishers Weekly). "Enchanting, in the perfumed style of disenchantment brought to grandeur by Proust and Nabokov" (John Updike). An absolute "must-have" title for Andrew Sean Greer collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Andrew Sean Greer. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. 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: Should NOT be confused with the "Today Book Club Edition, which is indicated as such with the show's logo on the DJ cover. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for "Less" in 2018. One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ANDREW SEAN GREER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
