The author's second novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "An utterly wonderful novel. Magic that lures the reader with the seductions of passion and wit and then rewards him with the surprises that can only come when the home truths of human existence are disclosed through the eyes of a writer with a large and understanding heart" (The Washington Post). 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.
