Description:

First Edition Signed By Author. A pristine, unread, unmarked copy of this seminal novel by Nobel Prize nominee Sanchez. A small orange sticker on the front cover indicates "Autographed at: Books Inc." This legendary Bay Area bookstore is one of the last independents. Sanchez' autograph is excquiste and this copy is beautiful and highly collectible. Mile Zero is Key West, the last American frontier, and this is a novel of the dangerous activities of denizens of that precarious dot of geography. The novel opens with a panoramic evocation of a space shuttle burtling toward new frontiers while feqarful refugees flee across the Caribbean, bound for a dream of haven in the USA.

Synopsis: "Mile zero" marks the location of Key West -- the island that defines the end of the American road, the cultural junction where Anglo-Saxon, Latin, and Afro worlds collide. On this island, with its cruel legacy of slave trade and Latin revolution, and its turbulent present of marijuana millionaires, threadbare illegal immigrants, and hard-luck treasure hunters, lives St. Cloud, an American expatriated in his own country, a fugitive from the unresolved anguish of his generation. Chronicling St. Cloud's dangerous reawakening, Mile Zero illuminates the inward and outward tumult of our time in a huge, startling, and profoundly felt novel.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover: "Dazzling...a comic masterpiece crackling with backhanded wit... bursting with vital characters...a novel of uncommon richness....Its brilliantly contrived plot uncoils with the suspense of a thriller."

-- New York Times Book Review"A holy terror of a book...[It has] immense power and passion.... Half mystery, half panegyric and wholly one of a kind, Mile Zero is [a] fascinating novel about the end of the American road and the beginnings of a new world."

-- Washington Post Book World

"A mythmaking and magisterial novel." -- Vanity Fair
