McCabe, Patrick. MONDO DESPERADO: A SERIAL NOVEL. New York City, NY: HarperCollins Publishers, 2000. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 240 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's sixth novel. One of the author's finest achievements. The first appearance of the title in the United States and in hardcover. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. Please note: The First British Edition is a softcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Patrick McCabe's "Mondo Desperado". One of the author's most brilliant, macabre, and dementedly funny works. Described by the author as "like Sherwood Anderson's 'Winesburg, Ohio' on drugs". "McCabe may well be the lodestone of Irish fiction" (New York Observer). An absolute "must-have" title for Patrick McCabe collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Patrick McCabe. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (American) 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 novelists of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PATRICK MCCABE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0060194618. $30.00
