INTERPRETER OF MALADIES: THE FIRST "PULITZER PRIZE" HARDCOVER EDITION

Lahiri, Jhumpa

New York City, NY: Houghton And Mifflin, 1999. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Houghton And Mifflin, 1999. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 197 pages. The author's breakthrough debut book. One of the greatest American short story collections of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the 2006 Easton Press Edition, published seven years later. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only to commemorate the book's well-deserved win. This is one of very few times in modern American literary history that a Pulitzer Prize Winner (indicated with a metallic-silver gilt stamp in front) was recognized and celebrated as such. This happened because the publisher, which largely ignored the book at first, was shamed into putting out a decent Hardcover Edition after telling the then-completely-unknown author that they were taking a huge gamble by publishing her work as it is. The book remains available in innumerable subsequent printings as a regular trade softcover edition. The First Hardcover Edition, which also went into several subsequent printings, is now rare. Presents Jhumpa Lahiri's "Interpreter of Maladies". Nine brilliant and moving stories that catapulted the beautiful young writer to unprecedented national and international renown. "Lahiri writes with a deft cultural insight reminiscent of Anita Desai and a nuanced depth that recalls Mavis Gallant. An important and powerful new voice" (The New York Times) . "There are times I am bewildered by each mile I have traveled, each meal I have eaten, each person I have known, each room in which I have slept. As ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination" (Jhumpa Lahiri) . A luminous masterpiece. An absolute "must-have" title for Jhumpa Lahiri collectors. <B><I> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Jhumpa Lahiri. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is a great book. This is one of very 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. Please note: Many copies available online are subsequent printings or have serious flaws yet command as much as $475. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 2000 for "Interpreter of Maladies". One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy.
