GOING AFTER CACCIATO: A NOVEL by TIM O'BRIEN (1978) BOUND GALLEY PROOF - SIGNED
New York: Delacorte / Seymour Lawrence, 1978. The covers are sunned, and the spine is somewhat askew, still about a Like New copy. To be published by Delacorte / Seymour Lawrence, this is NOT the published edition, but the paperback bound galleys (here called Uncorrected Proof) in plain wrappers, preceding the trade edition. In a protective mylar wrapper. 344 pp. Signed "Peace, Tim O'Brien." The covers are sunned, and the spine is somewhat askew, still about a Like New copy. Proofs/advance reader copies are considered the 'true' first edition by many collectors. Since they are produced in relatively small numbers, they are highly desirable. Usually even scarcer, bound galleys, when present, precede proofs and advance reader copies. In a blend of reality and fantasy, this novel tells the story of a young soldier who one day lays down his rifle and sets off on a quixotic journey from the jungles of Indochina to the streets of Paris. In its memorable evocation of men both fleeing from and meeting the demands of battle, Going After Cacciato stands as much more than just a great war novel. Ultimately it's about the forces of fear and heroism that do battle in the hearts of us all. A National Book Award-winning novel and a key title in the literature of the Vietnam War. By the author of If I Die in a Combat Zone, The Things They Carried, and In the Lake of the Woods. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
Bookseller: mbroom1 [New York, New York, United States]
