Ackerman, Elliot. WAITING FOR EDEN. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2018. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 180 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's third novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. Presents Elliot Ackerman's "Waiting For Eden". The third novel in what is, ostensibly, a War Trilogy for our time, preceded by "Green On Blue" (2015) and "Dark At The Crossing" (2017). "How often does one encounter a novel as perfectly shaped, as fresh, as subtle, and as explosive as this? I couldn't turn away from Elliot Ackerman's taut wonder, and when I got to the final page, I wanted to start all over again, in light of the haunting last words. Patiently, and unflinchingly, Ackerman is becoming one of the great poet laureates of America's tragic adventurism across the globe" (Pico Iyer). An absolute "must-have" title for Elliot Ackerman collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed, placed, and dated in black pen-marker on the title page by the author: "7/10/19 NYC Elliot Ackerman". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Material of the event during which his signature was obtained. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed, placed, and dated copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Finalist of the National Book Award in 2017 for "Dark At The Crossing". One of the most brilliant new voices in American literature. A fine copy.
