1 Cunningham, Michael Golden States : A Novel
New York, NY, U.S.A. Crown 1984 0-517-55279-5 / 9780517552797 First Edition, First Printing 
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Blue boards quarterbound in mustard-yellow cloth. The spine is stamped in metallic blue. Octavo. Light brown endpapers. 241pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: 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 new mylar sleeve, has a very slight crinkle at the heel of the spine; no chips, soiling, or tears. The original price is intact. The author's first novel. Cunningham went on to win the Pulitzer Prize and the Pen/Faulkner Award for 'The Hours.'

"...This spring David Stark will cross the boundary from youth to manhood. Like Huckleberry Finn's coming of age, David's passage captures, for one golden moment, a time (the 1980s), a place (Southern California), and a way of seeing the world that exemplifies America itself -- as it is now, as it is changing, and as it will become.
Here is the story of a man whose courage, wonder, and love for his family represent all of us at our best. Here is an American family that -- in its vulnerability and endurance -- is all our families. And here is a startlingly fine first novel that celebrates all that is good and interesting about this country and its people..."

2 Cunningham, Michael The Hours
New York Farrar Straus & Giroux 1998 0-374-17289-7 / 9780374172893 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
[1998]. Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Tan boards with a brown, silver-stamped backstrip. Octavo. 230pps. There is light bumping to the spine-ends, otherwise Fine: clean, tight, square, and bright. No previous ownership markings. The first-state dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is mildly rubbed and has a small, closed tear at the bottom of the rear panel; the original price (22.00) is intact. A very nice, collector's copy of this winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award.

"...Passionate, profound, and deeply moving, 'The Hours' tells the story of three women: Clarissa Vaughan, who one New York morning goes about planning a party in honor of a beloved friend; Laura Brown, who in a 1950s Los Angeles suburb slowly begins to feel the constraints of a perfect family and home; and Virginia Woolf, recuperating with her husband in a London suburb and beginning to write Mrs. Dalloway. By the end of the novel, the stories have intertwined, and finally come together in an act of subtle and haunting grace, demonstrating Michael Cunningham's deep empathy for his characters as well as the extraordinary resonance of his language..."
