Fourth Hand, The

This is a Fine Proof copy of The Fourth Hand. The text is absolutely clean and there is only a very slight 'curling' of the outer wraps. The inner wraps shop the original cover of the first edition. This novel is from John Irving, one of our most important writers and also the author of the 'Rabbit' books as well as 'The Cider House Rules' and 'The World According to Garp'. Proofs are printed before the First edition in very limited quantities and are always more rare than the First edition. Tight and unread. Very, very little shelfwear. From a great American author. This is an unusual work. While reporting a story from India, a New York television journalist has his left hand eaten by a lion. Millions of viewers witness the event. In Boston a renowned hand surgeon waits for the chance to perform the world's first hand transplant. A married woman in Wisconsin wants to give the one handed reporter her husband's left hand - that is, after her husband dies. But the husband is alive, young, and healthy. This is John Irving's 10th novel.
