Johnson, Diane. LE MARIAGE. New York City, NY: Dutton, 2000. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 322 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The author's ninth novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Diane Johnson's "Le Mariage". A delicious treat. The sequel-of-sorts to "Le Divorce", the bestseller that belatedly and deservedly established Diane Johnson's international reputation. Continues the author's piquant observations of domestic bliss and sorrow in a novel that is replete with interesting characters, enchanting settings, and the most intricate plot turns: Hostage taking, murder, and most rewardingly, erotic encounters of the most delicious kind. An absolute "must-have" title for Diane Johnson collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Diane Johnson. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing 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. . ISBN 0525945180. $30.00
