Auster, Paul. LULU ON THE BRIDGE. New York City, NY: Henry Holt And Company, 1998. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 219 pages. Fine.

The author's screenplay of his directorial film debut. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the edition published by ACTES Sud. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Paul Auster. Black-and-white stills from the finished film. Without DJ, as issued. Presents "Lulu On The Bridge". A tantalizing re-creation of a modern masterpiece, the screenplay of Paul Auster's "remake" film, an unusual twist to the classic, tragic love story. The screenplay alludes repeatedly to the classic silent film, which is re-enacted in part in the picture. "Life is both tragic and funny, both absurd and profoundly meaningful. I've tried to embrace this double aspect of experience in the stories I've written, both novels and screenplays" (Paul Auster). The film stars Harvey Keitel and Mira Sorvino, two of America's finest contemporary actors. An absolute "must-have" title for Paul Auster collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully in black ink-pen on the title page by Paul Auster. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary film and literary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First 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. (SEE ALSO OTHER PAUL AUSTER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 2742718710. $30.00
