Moore, Susanna. SLEEPING BEAUTIES. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1993. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 231 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The author's third novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "What a strange and lovely book with none of the muddy shabbiness that one finds in lesser prolonged rituals of growth. Moore reinvents the form and makes the old voyage new again. She writes like an angel who has taken a lifelong course in demonology" (Jim Harrison). A "must-have" title for Susanna Moore collectors. This copy is boldly and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Susanna Moore. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time and is now collectible. This is one of few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the Pen/Ernest Hemingway Citation and The Sue Kaufman Prize from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. One of the finest living American writers. A fine copy.
