The author's breakthrough debut collection of short stories. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now very scarce. A beautifully produced book by Stephanie Tevonian, the book interperses Edward P. Jones' fourteen short stories with full-page, black-and-white portraits and urban landscape photographs by Amos Chan. Presents Edward P. Jones' brilliant debut. "Beautifully and economically written, the stories are filled with revealing details of poverty and degradation, and yet the protagonists are survivors who look to find hope and meaning in their lives. The haunting, grainy black-and-white photographs add to the real atmosphere and reveal the underlying grit portrayed so evocatively in the prose" (Library Journal). An absolute "must-have" title for Edward P. Jones collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Edward P. Jones. He underlined his signature for emphasis. This title is now highly collectible.
