New York City, NY: W. W. Norton & Company, 2010. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: W. W. Norton & Company, 2010. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 290 pages. The author's third novel. One of the most important literary events of the decade. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Nicole Krauss' "Great House". Her third novel, and her first since the critically acclaimed "The History of Love" (2005). The novel tells not one but several narratives that are unrelated to each other but are tied together by and revolve around a physical object, a writing desk. Krauss uses the desk as a metaphor for destruction, loss, and recovery through memory. With "Man Walks Into A Room" (2002), Nicole Krauss "strides into the forefront of American letters" (Susan Sontag). "Great House", a "soaring, powerful novel about memory struggling to create a meaningful permanence in the face of inevitable loss", confirms that she will stay there. An absolute "must-have" title for Nicole Krauss collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Nicole Krauss. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of 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: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. </b></i> Nicole Krauss was selected as one of the "20 Writers Under 40" of the decade by The New Yorker Magazine. One of the most brilliant new voices in American literature. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER NICOLE KRAUSS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0393079988.
