WHAT YOU SEE IN THE DARK.

Edition: First printing.

Chapel Hill, NC: Algonquin Books, (2011) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The author's first novel (preceded by two story collections) explores the sinister side of desire in Bakersfield, California, circa 1959, when a famous director arrives to scout locations for a film about madness and murder at a roadside motel. One of the cleverest suspense conceits Ive encountered in a long time: two young lovers become entwined in a doomed affair, while, at the same time, Hitchcock and his minions begin setting up their equipment in sleepy Bakersfield . . . an atmospheric tale of twisted minds and small-town murder." (Maureen Corrigan, NPR) SIGNED on the title page (an uncommon signature) In 1923, Munoz received the MacArthur award for "depicting with empathy and nuance the Mexican American communities of California's Central Valley" and the Joyce Carol Oates Prize which "honors a mid-career author of fiction who has earned a distinguished following." 251 pp. ISBN: 978-1565125339.

Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
