THE KNOWN WORLD.
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
New York: Amistad / HarperCollins, (2003.). First edition - Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Award, a finalist for the National Book Award, this is a book that truly deserves all of the acclaim it has received. The story of free colored slaveholders in 1840's Virginia is both historically accurate and moving. Author Jeffrey Lent called this "a modern masterpiece that staggers the imagination...the most powerful and deeply realized novel I've read in a long time. This is a work that transforms and transports to such a thorough degree that when you finally step out 'The Known World,' you're shaken and turned around, never again to be the same. This novel is what literature can and should be.' This advance issue is attractively produced with a cover featuring the Eudora Welty photograph, wrappers with self-flaps. 388 pp.
Condition: Very near fine condition.
