About This Item

New York: Farrar Straus and Giroux [FSG], 2005 First printing of the stated first edition. Signed by Michael Cunningham directly on the publisher's bookplate laid-in on the half-title page. Book in fine condition; dust jacket with light surface scratches to back cover, else fine.

Synopsis

Specimen Days is a 2005 novel by American writer Michael Cunningham. It contains three stories: one that takes place in the past, one in the present and one in the future. Each of the three stories depicts three central, semi-consistent character-types: a young boy, a man, and a woman. Walt Whitman's poetry is also a common thread in each of the three stories and the title is from Whitman's own prose works.
