The Sellout, Beatty, Paul
1 Beatty, Paul The Sellout
New York, New York Farrar Straus & Giroux 2015 0374260508 / 9780374260507 First Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine Signed by Author
This copy of "The Sellout" has been SIGNED by Paul Beatty on the title page! "The Sellout" showcases a comic genius at the top of his game. A biting satire about a young man's isolated upbringing and an appeal of a race trial that sends him to the Supreme Court, it challenges the sacred tenets of the U.S Constitution, urban life, the civil rights movement, the father-son relationship, and the holy grail of racial equality - the Black Chinese restaurant. A powerful novel of vital import, "The Sellout" is an outrageous and outrageously entertaining indictment of our time. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the first American author to be named Winner of the MAN Booker Award. Scarce in a first printing - this is a beautiful copy without any remainder markings. This copy was signed by Paul Beatty from his appearance at Princeton University on February 8, 2017.

Life of Pi, Yann Martel
8 Yann Martel Life of Pi
Toronto, Canada Alfred A. Knopf Canada 2001 0676973760 / 9780676973761 First Canadian Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Near Fine Fine Signed by Author
This copy of "Life of Pi" has been SIGNED by Yann Martel on the title page. He has also completed the missing line on page 356 "and so it goes with god" and SIGNED Yann Martel there as well. This portion of the line was missing from the 2,500 first printing of the Canadian Edition (true first). Yann Martell has given us a book to delight in, to talk about and treasure. It possesses that greatest quality of good fiction: the power to transform. It will convince the most jaded among us - and remind the rest - that something grander is afoot in our lives than we may have realized. Funny and wrenching - alive with animals, adventure and invention - "Life of Pi" is a joyful creation, a triumph of storytelling and originality. Winner of the 2002 Man Booker Prize (among other honors) and was adapted to the screen in the Oscar-winning film by Ang Lee. A "bump" to the rear top board near the spine accounts for the grading.
