The Lay of the Land
NY, Knopf, 2006. The uncorrected proof copy (not the far more common advance reading copy) of the third book in Ford's four-book series featuring Frank Bascombe; the preceding book, Independence Day, won the Pulitzer Prize. Four pages marked in the text, with the final page listing three of these marked pages. The reader (reviewer?) appeared most interested in Ford's stated parallels between novelists and realtors. Cocked, with several stains to the light green wrappers. A very good copy of a scarce proof. [#031691] SOLD
