Maruya, Saiichi (Translated by Dennis Keene). SINGULAR REBELLION. Tokyo, Japan: Kodansha, 1986. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 412 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's breakthrough debut novel. The first appearance of the title in English. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. A major literary achievement, it is now considered one of the key works of modern Japanese literature. "Surely that bland-looking businessman you saw crossing the street does not have a single rebellious thought in his mind. Think again" (Publisher's blurb). A "must-have" title for Saiichi Maruya and modern Japanese literature collectors. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for twenty years and is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First English-language Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. The book soils easily because of its immaculate white DJ cover. A scarce copy thus. One of the most brilliant Japanese writers of the 20th century. A fine copy.
