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.
