Descripción New York City, NY: Random House, 1997. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Fine. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 321 pages. Published in 1997. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the finest novels of our time. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Arundhati Roy's "The God of Small Things". A tour-de-force first novel. "Nominally the story of young twins, Rahel and Estha, and the rest of their family, the book feels like a million stories spinning out indefinitely. It is the product of a genius child-mind that takes everything in and transforms it in an alchemy of poetry. At once exotic and familiar, written in an English that's completely new and invigorated by the Indian influences of culture and language" (Publisher's blurb). By any stringent measure, it is a phenomenal achievement by the first-time novelist who did not publish her second novel, "The Ministry of Utmost Happiness", until twenty years later, in 2017. More unnerved than exhilarated by her early success, Arundhati Roy had indicated that the second novel would entail a long period of gestation, which it did indeed. An absolute "must-have" title for Arundhati Roy collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Arundhati Roy. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Unlike her recent signature, this is vintage, signed in full instead of abbreviated. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The full number line beginning or ending in 2 (instead of 1) together with the "First Edition" statement were the Random House "true first" indications in the 20th century, stayed that way for the first half of the previous decade, and did not change until 2005/2006, and even then, on an inconsistent basis. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1997 for "The God of Small Things". One of the most brilliant writers of our time. A fine collectible copy.
