First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. Brooklyn, NY: Archipelago Books, 2014. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 430 pages. The third volume of the author's "My Struggle" six-volume novel. The translation is also known, particularly in the United Kingdom, as "Boyhood Island". The first appearance of the title in hardcover in the United States. Until now, all books published by Archipelago Books are softcover originals only. However, this book's bestseller success prompted the publisher to issue all six volumes in a Uniform Hardcover Edition. The softcover editions will continue to be published simultaneously in conjunction with another publisher, FSG. Presents Karl Ove Knausgaard's "Min Kamp" Volume Three in a felicitous English translation. Masterpiece. "Finds us in the sensuous realm of Karl Ove's childhood. It's the early 1970's and the family's trajectory: Upwardly mobile. The future seems limitless. In painstaking, sometimes self-lacerating detail, Knausgaard paints a world familiar to anyone who can recall the intensity and novelty of childhood experience, one in which children and adults lead parallel lives that never meet" (Publisher's blurb). What is the significance of, and why all the fuss behind, Karl Ove Knausgaard's "My Struggle"? It is the most full-fledged break from - and probably signals the end of - the mannerism, academicism, post-modernism, and all other pretentious and tired isms of our time. It announces the arrival of a major original voice in literature, writing without the crutch called "concept", in deceptively simple yet eloquent prose. It marks the rejection of our obsession with "celebrity lives", by focussing on the tiniest details of one man's ordinary life as well as deeply painful struggle. In sum, it represents, flaws and all, nothing less than the beginning of a new way of writing and possibly, a new era in literature. Time will tell if "My Struggle" is our century's response to Proust's "In Search of Lost Time" (1913-1927), as its most ardent admirers (and its publisher) assert that it is. An absolute "must-have" title for Karl Ove Knausgaard collectors. <b><i> This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Karl Ove Knausgaard. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. It should also be noted that this copy has his full signature, which is the way he signed the first three volumes of "My Struggle" when they first came out. Alas, beginning with "My Struggle: Volume Four: Dancing In The Dark", sheer demand, his rock-star status, and time constraint have made Knausgaard resort to shorthand, an Ondaatje-like swirl of a signature, a drastic abbreviation especially evident in the bookplate-signed copies. Laid-in are copies of the publisher's promotional materials, "My Hero: Karl Ove Knausgaard" by Jonathan Lethem and "The Magical Realism of Norwegian Nights" by Knausgaard, which first appeared in the New York Times Magazine. This title is a great book. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First American Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></I> One of the greatest novelists of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER KARL OVE KNAUSGAARD "MY STRUGGLE" TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

The author/filmmaker's debut collection of prose pieces. Now considered a contemporary classic. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United Kingdom. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. Originally published in Spain in 1991, the author was not yet the global sensation that he is today. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Pedro Almodovar's "Patty Diphusa And Other Writings" in a felicitous English translation. Vintage, early Almodovar. "These irresistibly funny pieces about the Golden Age of Madrid pop, punk, comics, and general frivolity were written during the 1980's, when Almodovar came of age as a filmmaker. Inspired in part by Andy Warhol's films, the title story features the adventures of a spunky star. The eponymous Patty, a self-absorbed young woman devoted to pleasure and in search of fame, breezes through the Madrid underground. Patty's innocence - and Almodovar's genius - makes these scenes funny. The irrepressible author cannot resist inserting himself as a character in the section entitled 'Filler', which contains some short sketches, a discussion about the importance of Madrid in his films, a self-interview, and tongue-in-cheek predictions for the end of the century. His charming autobiographical essay, 'Advice On How to Become An Internationally Famous Filmmaker', recounts the steps he took to find his avocation. Almodovar's quick wit, affable writing style, and refusal to take himself and the film community seriously infuse this collection with originality" (Publisher's blurb). One of the world's most influential and most beloved "culture heroes", this is an absolute "must-have" title for Pedro Almodovar film aficionado/collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Pedro Almodovar. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a Souvenir Postcard, "Viva Pedro", printed to commemorate the filmmaker's major retrospective in New York City, which Almodovar attended, and through which this signed copy was obtained. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First British Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> One of the greatest writer/filmmakers of our time. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 0571129161., Faber & Faber, 1992
