MR. PEANUT - Scarce Pristine Copy of The First Hardcover Edition/First Printing: Signed by Adam Ross - signiertes Exemplar

2016, ISBN: 030727070X

Gebundene Ausgabe, Erstausgabe, ID: 19422179853

[EAN: 9780307270702], Gebraucht, wie neu, [PU: New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2010], Jacket, 1st Printing. Signed. 345 pages. Published in 2010. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most important literary debuts of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Adam Ross' "Mr. Peanut". His acclaimed first novel, hailed as a masterpiece by The New Yorker Magazine. Peanut-allergic Alice is found dead with a peanut lodged in her throat, an apparent suicide or a possible homicide. Hence the title. "Delivers one scorching scene after another showing the dark side of marriage. David and Alice Pepin have been married for thirteen years. Despite the fact that David continually declares that he has been in love with Alice ever since he first spotted her in a film class on Alfred Hitchcock, he is continually imagining her death via airplane crashes, carjackings, burglaries gone bad, shark attacks, and 'convenient acts of God'. After a particularly stressful period in their marriage, Alice is found dead at the kitchen table, and David is the prime suspect. Ross is interested in all the soul-killing ways men and women try and fail to achieve intimacy. With its noirish sensibility and eloquent prose, this novel depicts marriage as one long double homicide" (Joanne Wilkinson). If Paul Harding is saying in "Tinkers" (2009, published around the same time) that healing is our reason for being, Adam Ross explores the exact opposite of that noble motive: Could it be that the real reason we are here is to kill each other? As strange and simplistic as it may sound at first, think about how it explains the civilized need to create more and more rules and laws not only against killing but against cruelty, which is always gratuitous and is another form of killing? Literally millions of people are killed and subjected to cruel treatment every single year. The precursor, from the male point-of-view, of such novels as Gillian Flynn's "Gone Girl" (2012), Paula Hawkins' "The Girl On The Train" (2015), and Fiona Barton's "The Widow" (2016), all from the female point-of-view. An absolute "must-have" title for Adam Ross collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the half-title page (his preferred page, as the title page is dark-pictorial) by Adam Ross. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant new voices in American literature. A fine copy. ISBN 030727070X.

David Pepin has been in love with his wife, Alice, since the moment they met in a university seminar on Alfred Hitchcock. After thirteen years of marriage, he still can't imagine a remotely happy life without her-yet he obsessively contemplates her demise. Soon she is dead, and David is both deeply distraught and the prime suspect.The detectives investigating Alice's suspicious death have plenty of personal experience with conjugal enigmas: Ward Hastroll is happily married until his wife inexplicably becomes voluntarily and militantly bedridden; and Sam Sheppard is especially sensitive to the intricacies of marital guilt and innocence, having decades before been convicted and then exonerated of the brutal murder of his wife.Still, these men are in the business of figuring things out, even as Pepin's role in Alice's death grows ever more confounding when they link him to a highly unusual hit man called Mobius. Like the Escher drawings that inspire the computer games David designs for a living, these complex, interlocking dramas are structurally and emotionally intense, subtle, and intriguing; they brilliantly explore the warring impulses of affection and hatred, and pose a host of arresting questions. Is it possible to know anyone fully, completely? Are murder and marriage two sides of the same coin, each endlessly recycling into the other? And what, in the end, is the truth about love?Mesmerizing, exhilarating, and profoundl literary,literature and fiction,mystery thriller and suspense,police procedurals,suspense,thrillers Suspense, Knopf
