Nelson, Antonya. LIVING TO TELL. New York City, NY: Scribner, 2000. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 317 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's third novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. 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 Antonya Nelson's "Living To Tell". Possibly her best book thus far. "The characters' self-study leads to true (if incomplete) understanding; and the story's hard-won, moderately happy ending is a satisfying benediction upon this ensemble cast, about which the reader has truly come to care" (The New York Times). An absolute "must-have" title for Antonya Nelson collectors. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few 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 copy thus. Winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction, The Nelson Algren Award, and a PEN Syndicated Fiction Award. Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy.
