1 Quindlen, Anna One True Thing
New York, NY, U.S.A. Random House, Incorporated 1994 0-679-40712-X / 9780679407126 First Edition, First Printing SIGNED by the Author
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Cherry-red boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Red endpapers. 289pps. There is a touch of sunfading at the extreme top edge of the backstrip, otherwise flawless: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a horizontal incision -- very fine and closed -- on the front panel; it is otherwise as new; the original price is intact. SIGNED and inscribed by the author to a previous owner on the second fep.

"...A young woman is in jail, accused of the mercy killing of her mother. She says she didn't do it; she thinks she knows who did. When Ellen Gulden first learns that her mother, Kate, has cancer, the disease is already far advanced. Her father insists that Ellen quit her job and come home to take care of Kate. Ellen has always been the special child in the family, the high achiever, her father's intellectual match, and the person caught in the middle between her parents. She has seen herself as very different from her mother, the talented homemaker, the family's popular center, its one true thing. Yet as Ellen begins to spend her days with Kate, she learns many surprising things, not only about herself but also about her mother, a woman she thought she knew so well. The life choices Ellen and her mother have made are reassessed in this deeply moving novel, a work of fiction that is richly imbued with profound insights into the complex lives of women and men..."
