Octavo, original black and gray cloth, original dust jacket. $3200.First edition, first issue, signed by Nobel Prize-winner Bellow on the title page.Winner of the 1954 National Book Award, Saul Bellow's third novel, Augie March, was "the book that firmly established him as a writer of consequence. The beginning of the novel was as striking and as unforgettable as the beginning of Huckleberry Finn and it announced a brand-new voice in American fiction, jazzy, brash, exuberant, with accents that were both Yiddish and Whitmanian" (New York Times). To Martin Amis, Augie March is "the definitive Great American Novel" and to Ian McEwan, Bellow's work stands out as "the embodiment of an American vision of plurality". We owe him everything" (Guardian). Bellow was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1976. First issue, with top edge orange, in first issue dust jacket, without reviews. Book about-fine with just a touch of discoloration to rear board; dust jacket bright and lovely, with only a bit of rubbing to spine ends, also about-fine. A desirable signed copy.
