The Yellow Birds
(NY), Little Brown, (2012). Two volumes: both the uncorrected proof copy and the advance reading copy of the first American edition of the author's highly praised first novel, a story of the Iraq war and its impact on two young American soldiers. Winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award, the Guardian Book Prize and a finalist for the National Book Award, and one of The New York Times ten best books of the year. Oddly, the proof is typeset and the advance reading copy is shot from the author's typescript. Although unmarked, both are from the library of Philip Caputo. Very near fine in wrappers.

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