Discontent and Its Civilizations: Dispatches from Lahore, New York, and London, Hamid, Mohsin
1 Hamid, Mohsin Discontent and Its Civilizations: Dispatches from Lahore, New York, and London
New York, New York Riverhead Books 2015 1594633657 / 9781594633652 First Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine Signed by Author
This copy of "Discontent and Its Civilizations" has been SIGNED by Mohsin Hamid on the title page! A writer who has earned a reputation as a "master critic of the modern global condition." In this collection of essays Hamid traces the fracture lines generated by a decade and a half of seismic change, from the "war on terror" to the struggles of individuals to maintain humanity in the rigid face of ideology or the indifferent face of globalization. While at Princeton University, Hamid took two Creative Writing courses - one with Joyce Carol Oates and the other with Toni Morrison. Hamid was born in Lahore, Pakistan, went with his family when he was three to live in California, then back to Pakistan, then to Princeton University, then Harvard Law, then as a management consultant in New York and London, and now back to Lahore, Pakistan where he currently resides. His most recent work, "Exit West" has been shortlisted for the 2017 MAN Booker Award.

The Road, McCarthy, Cormac
6 McCarthy, Cormac The Road
New York, New York Alfred A. Knopf, Inc 2006 0307265439 / 9780307265432 First Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A beautiful copy of this National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize Winning work by Cormac McCarthy. All first edition points present. "The Road" is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation. "Tiny" bump on one top corner - dustjacket still "Fine."

The Informers, Vasquez, Juan Gabriel
7 Vasquez, Juan Gabriel The Informers
New York, New York Riverhead Books 2009 1594488789 / 9781594488788 First Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine McLean, Anne [translator] Signed by Author
This beautiful copy of "The Informers" has been SIGNED by Juan Gabriel Vasquez on the title page! When Gabriel Santoro's book is scathingly reviewed by his own father, a famous Bogota rhetorician, Gabriel is both shocked and devastated by the icy rebuke. A volume that catalogues the life of longtime family friend Sara Guterman, a Jewish German immigrant who escaped to Colombia during the 1930s, "A Life in Exile" seemed merely Gabriel's attempt to preserve a piece of his country's rapidly vanishing past. But as he pores over his research looking for clues to his father's anger, a sinister secret lies locked in the pages, just beyond Gabriel's reach. From an interview with the author "In writing "The Informers," I wanted to find out about the way the war was experienced in Colombia: about the existence of a Nazi party there, about the blacklists, about the way my generation has inherited the consequences of what happened in those years. After my interviews in 1999, I had a whole life written down in notepads; my task was to transform it and then to invent other lives that would bring the historical moment to the surface. My task, in other words, was to look for that place where private secrets cross paths with public ones, and shed a little light on it. "Novels," said Balzac, "are the private history of nations." That idea carried me through the writing of The Informers." Winner of many subsequent prizes/awards, Mario Vargas Llosa has called Vasquez "One of the most original new voices of Latin American literature."

The Secret History of Costaguana, Vasquez, Juan Gabriel
9 Vasquez, Juan Gabriel The Secret History of Costaguana
New York, New York Riverhead Books 2011 1594488037 / 9781594488030 First Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine McLean, Anne [translator] Signed by Author
This beautiful copy has been SIGNED by Juan Gabriel Vasquez on the title page! In the early twentieth century, a struggling Joseph Conrad wrote his great novel "Nostromo," about a South American republic he named Costaguana. It was inspired by the geography and history of Colombia, where Conrad spent only a few days. But in Juan Gabriel Vasquez's novel "The Secret History of Costaguana," we uncover the hidden source- and one of the great literary thefts. As the destinies of real empires collide with the murky realities of imagined ones, the author takes us from a flourishing twentieth-century London to the lawless fury of a blooming Panama and back.
