SMITH, Michael Farris
NY, Simon & Schuster, (2013). Two volumes: both a first edition, inscribed by the author and the advance reading copy of this novel that posits an unending series of major hurricanes resulting in the southern portion of the U.S., along the Gulf of Mexico, being abandoned by the U.S. government. The Category 5 hurricanes that hit the Caribbean in close succession in 2017 gave this fictional premise a reality that its author probably never conceived during the writing of this novel. The advance copy is very near fine in wrappers; the book and jacket have a tiny tear at the spine crown, else fine in a fine dust jacket. Both volumes carry advance praise from James Lee Burke.

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
