1 Garcia, Eric Matchstick Men: A Novel
New York Villard Books 2002 0375505229 / 9780375505225 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover SIGNED by the Author
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Black boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 228pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. The textblock is immaculate; no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a small crinkle on the front panel; the original price is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page. ".Roy and Frankie are matchstick men -- con artists. Partners in elegant crimes for years, they know each other like brothers and have perfected the rules of the game. Roy is the careful one. Saves every penny. Takes his medication regularly. Without the pills, his obsessive-compulsive disorder kicks in and he is too nauseated to do anything but stare at the dirt on the carpet. Frankie is the adventurous one, hungry for a big score. He wants Roy to join him in running a tricky game, but Roy is distracted -- for good reason. Roy has just discovered that he is the father of a punky teenage daughter from a brief marriage that ended years ago. Much to the frustration of Roy’s partner, the kid wants to get to know her father. She also wants to learn the family business. Novelist Eric Garcia takes readers into the fast and funny world of grifters with issues. 'Matchstick Men' is a dazzling literary con game that will keep readers guessing until the last page."
