Jernigan/Preston Falls/The Wonders of the Invisible World/A Hand Reached Down to Guide Me, Gates, David
1 Gates, David Jernigan/Preston Falls/The Wonders of the Invisible World/A Hand Reached Down to Guide Me
New York, New York Alfred A. Knopf, Inc 1991 First Editions/First Printings Hard Cover Fine Fine Signed by Author
This offer is for a complete collection of David Gates's books - sold as a set - all have been SIGNED by him on their respective title pages! These include: 1) "Jernigan" (1991) - the story of one man's rapid unravelling - between Independence Day and Christmas - as he observes, appalled and entranced, his own self-destructive ingenuity. A Pulitzer Prize finalist in 1992 and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. 2) "Preston Falls" (1998) - A surprising, comic, horrifying and always engrossing novel, charged with the responsibilities of middle age and with the abiding power of love. however disappointed - told with great artistry, pitch-perfect undersatanding and fierce compassion. A Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. 3) "The Wonders of the Invisible World" (1999) - These stories illuminate with unflinching vision and hard-earned compassion a great variety of lives: men and women, young and old, in thrall to - or in flight from - jobs less creative than the echoing past had promised, as their parents, siblings or children die, implode or (perhaps just as bad) flourish. 4) "A Hand Reached Down to Touch Me" (2015) - These eleven stories, along with a masterful novella, mark the triumphant return of David Gates, whom "New York" magazine anointed "a true heir to both Raymond Carver and John Cheever." Relentlessly inventive, alternately hilarious and tragic, always moving, this book proves yet again that Gates is one of our most talented, witty and emotionally intelligent writers. Shipping charges to be advised depending upon where the books are to be sent.

This offer is for a complete set of Dana Spiotta's four novels - all SIGNED by her on their title pages! Sold as a set only. 1) "Lightning Field" (2001) explores the language tics of our culture - the consumerist fetishes, the self-obsession and the fleeting possibility that you might have just gotten it all badly wrong. A New York Times Notable Book of the Year. 2) "Eat the Document" (2006) Shifting between the protests in the 1970s and the consequences of those choices in the 1990s, Dana Spiotta deftly explores the connection between the two eras - their language, technology, music, and activism. Character-driven and brilliant, "Eat the Document" is an important and revelatory novel about the culture of rebellion, with particular resonance now. A National Book Award finalist and Winner of the Rosenthal Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. 3) "Stone Arabia" (2011) her moving and intrepid third novel, is about family, obsession, memory, and the urge to create - in isolation, at the margins of our winner-take-all culture. Dana Spiotta has established herself as a singularly powerful and provocative writer whose work is fiercely original. "Stone Arabia" - riveting, unnerving, and strangely beautiful - reexamines what it means to be an artist and redefines the ties that bind. A National Book Critics Circle Award finalist. 4) "Innocents and Others" (2016) This superb new novel centers n the long friendship between two women whose identities and ideals are challenged by the work they do and the people they love. Spiotta writes about culture, self-image, and intimacy with spectacular insight and compassion. "Innocents and Others" is heartbreaking, revelatory, and exhilarating.
