Viking Adult, 2002-01-28. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed. A delightful first novel that inaugurated quite a sensation on both sides of the Atlantic, The Eyre Affair is a bibliomystery set in an alternate universe. The year is 1985, Wales is a Soviet Republic, dodos are available in home-cloning kits, the Crimean War is 131 years old and the ending of Jane Eyre has been stolen by the archfiend Acheron Styx. Thursday Next, a LiteraTec promoted to Section 5, is the heroine of this heady brew. Time runs funny in Thursday's world and we can't wait for her next adventure - kind of a literary fractured fairy tale for all you former Rocky and Bullwinkle fans. This is the first American edition (the British is the true first). SIGNED plus promotional postcard. All of our first editions are first printings unless otherwise noted. Dustwrappers are protected with clear archival wraps and we pack each book like it's a Tiffany egg.
