Book Description New York City, NY: W. W. Norton & Company, 1993. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 399 pages. Published in 1993. The author's second novel. One of Charles Baxter's finest achievements. Advance Reader's Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. Published in a tiny print run as a softcover original only. An austerely elegant production by W. W. Norton: Regular-sized volume format. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Unlike most Advance Reader's Editions, the production is full-sized, like a regular hardcover. Text by Charles Baxter. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Charles Baxter's "Shadow Play". A masterly achievement. "We have the satisfaction of having been immersed in a beautifully rendered and fully imagined world" (The New York Times Book Review). Charles Baxter has been heaped with praise, from being "our John Cheever" to "the ultimate writer's writer". "Shadow Play" has been called the twentysomething's "Catcher In the Rye": "What Salinger was to me at 16, Baxter is at 29. A mature examination of an adult's life in an ordinary town, written in an extraordinary fashion". "In his quiet cosmic wonderment, Baxter is the equal of John Updike and Anne Tyler at their largest and best" (John Berendt). An absolute "must-have" title for Charles Baxter collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Charles Baxter. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the Advance Reader's Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the National Endowment for the Arts Grant, the Guggenheim Foundation Grant, and the Lila Wallace/Reader's Digest Writer's Award. Finalist of the National Book Award in 2000 for "Feast of Love". One of the greatest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CHARLES BAXTER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
