Bohjalian, Chris. THE LAW OF SIMILARS. New York City, NY: Harmony Books, 1999. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 275 pages. As New/As New. Signed.

The author's sixth novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. 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 Chris Bohjalian's "The Law of Similars". The sequel to his most beloved novel, "Midwives". Bohjalian is adept at examining social and moral issues fraught with ambiguities. Here, again, he focuses on a fallible protagonist whose lapse in ethical judgment is motivated by love and need. "Chris Bohjalian is an artist of the small but seismic instant. As this gripping novel proves, he knows all too well the awful daring of a moment's surrender" (Siobhan Carson). Bohjalian enjoys a cult following, deservedly so, as he is one of the most accomplished stylists writing today. He has often said that he would prefer to have a core group of passionate readers than a mass base. An absolute "must-have" title for Chris Bohjalian collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Chris Bohjalian. 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. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CHRIS BOHJALIAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0517705869. $30.00
