THE MAMMOTH CHEESE.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, (2003) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The author's third novel, short-listed for the Orange Prize for Fiction - one reviewer commented that it "winds along through most of the great themes of American fiction (tradition vs. innovation, the weight of the past, the dehumanizing effects of industrialization, the rifts between parents and children, men and women), picking up bits of history along the way, and carrying you wherever Holman wishes. The opening pages introduce at least 15 characters (not including the 11 premature babies born to dog trainer Manda Frank), a rough outline of the history of Three Chimneys, Virginia, and more information on small-farm cheesemaking than you might ever have thought you'd would want to learn, let alone absorb with fascination." SIGNED on the title page. 440 pp. ISBN: 0-871139006.
Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
