Orange, Tommy. THERE THERE. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2018. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 304 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most important literary debuts of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly "Second Printing Before Publication" copies that are signed on a tipped-in page. The latter means there was a first printing before publication. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now rare. Presents, in its First Edition format, Tommy Orange's "There There". His first novel, acclaimed by some of the greatest writers of our time. "Sweeping and subtle. Pure soaring beauty" (Colm Toibin). "A rush of intensity and fervor. Bursting with talent and big ideas. Funny and profane and conscious of the violence that runs like a scar through American culture" (Jeff Baker). An absolute "must-have" title for Tommy Orange collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, placed, and dated (in the year of publication) in black ink-pen on the title page by the author: "Tommy Orange NYC 12.10.2018". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as "Second Printing Before Publication" copies available online are. As a special bonus, this copy comes (only from us) in a lovely collector's slipcase. This title is a contemporary classic. This is the best such signed, placed, and publication-year dated copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing 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 rare signed copy thus. Winner of the American Center For Fiction's First Novel Award in 2018 for "There There". Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2019 for "There There". One of the most brilliant American novelists of our time. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 0525520376. $150.00
