The Familiar, Volume 1: One Rainy Day in May
NY, Pantheon, (2015). The uncorrected proof copy of the first volume in his projected 27 volume series, to be released at the pace of 2-3 volumes per year. In Volume 1, a 12 year-old epileptic girl sets out to get a dog and finds a kitten, an event foreshadowed as world-changing in the promotional copy. 880 pages, with his characteristic use of design and typeface. Danielewski had a bestseller with House of Leaves and a National Book Award nomination with Only Revolutions. A very small spine abrasion has taken out the "w" in the author's name; else fine in pink wrappers. The earliest issue of what promises to be an unprecedented series in modern American literature.
