Chabon, Michael. SUMMERLAND. New York City, NY: Miramax Books, 2002. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 500 pages. As New/As New. Signed.

The author's debut children's novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. The author turns his attention to the American national sport and pastime, baseball. An engaging and accessible novel that manages to avoid condescending to its astute young readers and for that matter, to anyone who cares about good writing, whether it's about baseball or not. Michael Chabon has lived up to the promise of his early novels and short stories with a body of work that is now considerable in its range and achievement. This is a refreshingly magical tale of legends, mythical beings, and monsters, of the never-ending struggle between good and evil. A "must-have" title for Michael Chabon completists. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black marker on the title page by Michael Chabon. In addition, Chabon prominently stamped the page with his self-created (and clearly fictitious) "Society for Universal Baseball Research" circular "Seal of Approval". This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a long time and is now collectible. This is one of relatively few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2000 for "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay". One of the finest living American writers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MICHAEL CHABON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0786808772. $90.00
