Big As Life. E. L. Doctorow.
Big As Life.
(Doctorow, E. L.)

Big As Life.

NY: Simon and Schuster, (1966). First edition of the author’s scarce second book. This copy is inscribed by Doctorow on the front endpaper, and even the inscription, “A rare edition,” attests to the scarcity of this title. Although not set in the future, Doctorow employs the science fiction device of a catastrophic event, in this instance, the appearance of two gigantic figures in New York Harbor, and the human drama that unfolds in response to it. Doctorow never allowed this book to be reprinted. Faint strip of sunning along upper edge of front board, small spot to back cover, else a near fine copy in an unfaded dust wrapper, which is lightly worn at extremities, including a crease on the upper panel. Item #18528

Price: $650.00
