Ehrlich, Gretel. A MATCH TO THE HEART. New York City, NY: Pantheon, 1994. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 202 pages. Fine. Signed.

The author's third novel. Advance Reader's Copy. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. Published in a small and limtied print run as a softcover original only. Noneof the copies was commercially sold. There is no ISBN. The Advance Reader's Edition is now scarce. It is elegantly produced: Softcover pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Gretel Ehrlich. Matching softcover slipcase. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Gretel Ehrlich's "A Match To The Heart". Widely considered to be her finest achievement. Contains some of the author's most lyrically beautiful writing. An absolute "must-have" title for Gretel Ehrlich collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Gretel Ehrlich. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the Advance Reader's Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GRETEL EHRLICH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $30.00
