March (Signed Hard Wraps- Pulitzer), Brooks, Geraldine
1 Brooks, Geraldine March (Signed Hard Wraps- Pulitzer)
E Rutherford, New Jersey, U.S.A. Penguin USA 2006 0143036661 / 9780143036661 Hard Paper Wraps Fine No Jacket 
First Edition/Signed by author on title page. This is an unread very fine paperback copy of the Pulitzer Prize winning novel of 2006 from Geraldine Brooks. Signed recently by the author in New York City at a much publicized signing event for her new novel, "The People of the Book" which is also rumoured to be on the short list for the Pulitzer--along with Hosseini's "A Thousand Splendid Suns". Based on the character "Captain March" (father and Civil War Chaplain) from Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women", Brooks used the story line to develop themes on war, brutality, and respect for fellow man. Brook's poetic writing has the reader enthralled from the first couple of pages--and the opening scene of Captain March trying to hang on to a drowning soldier in a river is one of the very best openings to a novel in recent years. Rare paper wraps signed copy.
