Russo, Richard. TRAJECTORY: STORIES. New York City, NY: Alfred A Knopf, 2017. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 245 pages. Fine/Fine.

Retrospective collection of short stories and a novella. One of Richard Russo's finest achievements. 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. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Richard Russo's "Trajectory". Three new stories and his masterly novella, "Intervention", from a contemporary American Master. "Crackles with Russo's perceptive wit and unwavering compassion for the human condition" (Publisher's blurb). "Thoughtful, soulful. It will abruptly break your heart. That's what Richard Russo does, without pretension or fuss, time and time again" (The New York Times). An absolute "must-have" title for Richard Russo collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and dated in black ink-pen on the title page by the author: "Richard Russo 5.15.18 NYC". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as many copies available online are. 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: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for "Empire Falls". One of the greatest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER RICHARD RUSSO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1101947721. $50.00
