Simpson, Mona. OFF KECK ROAD. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2000. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 167 pages. As New/As New. Signed.

The author's fourth novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. It is so tightly written that, as publishing standards go, it has been mistakenly labeled a novella. It is, in fact, a perfect novel and proof that brevity is the soul of wisdom. "Should not be read in public places, against the certainty of tears. Continually moving in a wry, Chekhovian way" (The Atlantic Monthly). One of Mona Simpson's finest achievements. A "must-have" title for Mona Simpson collectors. This presentation copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and inscribed in red fountain pen on the title page by the author: "With best wishes, Mona Simpson. Oak Park" The recipient is named. This title is no longer in print as a hardcover and is now collectible. This copy has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of the 20th century. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MONA SIMPSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0375410104. $30.00
