(NY), Scribner, (1997). His masterwork. Winner of the William Dean Howells Award for the best work of fiction published in the U.S. over a five-year period. Nominated for the National Book Award. One of an unspecified number of copies signed by the author on a tipped-in leaf. The dust jacket differs from the jacket of the trade edition by having "Special Signed Copy: Not For Sale" printed on the rear panel in place of the bar code, and there is no price on the front flap. Small bump to lower rear board edge; else fine in a fine dust jacket. [#914900] $200
