This copy of "Out of Egypt" has been SIGNED by Andre Aciman on the half-title page! Set in luxuriant cosmopolitan Alexandria, this richly colored memoir chronicles the exploits of a flamboyant Jewish family from its bold arrival in Egypt at the turn of the century to its defeated exodus three generations later. Aciman describes a spirited clan as they stride across continents, plotting, peddling, marrying, hatching harebrained schemes, amassing and losing fortunes, only to find their Alexandrian dream crumbling in the face of anti-Semitic and anti-Western nationalism. And he shows us a boy who, even as he longs for the wider world, does not want to be led, forever, out of Egypt. There is some wear to the dust jacket corners that account for the grading.
