Lethem, Jonathan (Contributor); Watson, Andy & Ziesing, Mark V. (Editors). JOURNAL WIRED QUARTERLY: "NOODLING" SHORT STORY. Englewood, CO: Watson Creative Solutions, 1990. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 175 pages. Fine. Signed.

Rare Jonathan Lethem memorabilia item. Journal Wired Quarterly Spring 1990 Issue. Published in a very small and limited print run as a softcover original only. Features one of the earliest publications of the author's work. According to Jonathan Lethem, it is his second piece ever to be published. It significantly precedes any of his work in book form, including his debut novel, "Gun, With Occasional Music", which was shamefully ignored by critics and the reading public when it first appeared in 1994, but is now considered a contemporary classic. A "must-have" item for Jonathan Lethem collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in metallic-silver marker on the title page by Jonathan Lethem. His signature fills up the page and glows radiantly against the light. This is the only copy available online and is in unusually fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Crawford Award for Best Fantasy Novel and the Locus Award for Best First Novel in 1994 for "Gun, with Occasional Music". Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1999 for "Motherless Brooklyn". Selected as one of the "Best Books of the Year" by the New York Times in 2003 for "Fortress of Solitude". Winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant in 2005. One of the most brilliant new voices in American literature. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JONATHAN LETHEM TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
