New York: Random House, . First edition. SIGNED by the author. An early proof version, 8 1/2 x 11 inches with plastic covers--clear front cover and black rear cover--and black, cloth-taped spine. Letter from Random House publisher Ann Godoff as first leaf, "Dear Colleague: It is with great pleasure that I send along the manuscript.... As always, I find sustenance and wisdom in your comments; so please don't hesitate to e-mail me." Scarce pre-publication issue, scarcer still signed. Fine.
