Goodman, Allegra. PARADISE PARK. New York City, NY: The Dial Press, 2001. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 360 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The author's second novel. One of the most important literary events of the year 2001. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "Goodman's marvelous new novel involves a woman's tragicomic search for spiritual meaning, a journey as physically peripatetic as it is emotionally migratory. As always, the key to enjoying Goodman's fiction is gradual immersion. Her narratives do not feature razzle-dazzle plot twists or melodramatic peaks, just quietly eddying waves of emotions and events that slowly build to a tsunami of insight" (Publishers Weekly). A "must-have" title for Allegra Goodman collectors. This copy is prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Allegra Goodman. This title has been out-of-print for some time and is now collectible. This copy is one of the best we have ever seen. A scarce signed copy thus. Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". One of the finest living American writers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ALLEGRA GOODMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
