Moore, Susanna. SLEEPING BEAUTIES. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1993. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 231 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The author's third 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 Susanna Moore's "Sleeping Beauties". Her mesmerizing third novel. "What a strange and lovely book with none of the muddy shabbiness that one finds in lesser prolonged rituals of growth. Moore reinvents the form and makes the old voyage new again. She writes like an angel who has taken a lifelong course in demonology" (Jim Harrison). An absolute "must-have" title for Susanna Moore collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Susanna Moore. 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 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. Winner of the Pen/Ernest Hemingway Citation and The Sue Kaufman Prize from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy.
