Independence Day. Inscribed by Richard Ford. First Edition, First Printing. Knopf. New York, 1995.

$100.00

Fiction writer Richard Ford is one of the most acclaimed authors living today. He is a master of the natural beauty of language whose prose captures rhythms and sounds deeply familiar, yet also transcendent. His characters are fully formed, realistic, and accessible. His novels and short stories have earned him the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, the PEN/Faulkner Award, the PEN/Malamud Award, and many others. In Independence Day, Ford provides the sequel to his first major novel, The Sportswriter, following the protagonist Frank Bascombe over the course of a holiday weekend. With Ford’s characteristically pitch-perfect prose and fidelity to his character’s perspective and flaws, Independence Day stands out as one of the best novels of the last several decades. It won both the Pulitzer and the PEN/Faulkner Award–the first novel to win both–and established Ford as one of America’s greatest living authors.

This first edition, first printing is inscribed by Ford on the title page. It is in fine condition. In the original half cloth boards, fine. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, very nearly fine with only bumping to spine ends.

A fine inscribed first edition of Richard Ford’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Independence Day.
