New York: The Atlantic Monthly Press, 1986. First Edition, First Printing. Wrappers. A Near Fine copy of the Uncorrected Advance Proof for the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original blue wraps lettered in black, Wiley's DEBUT BOOK which won the 1987 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, an Award given annually awarded annually by the PEN/Faulkner Foundation to the authors of the year's best works of fiction by living American citizens. The winner receives US $15,000 and each of four runners-up receives US $5000. [William Faulkner won the 1949 Nobel Prize in Fiction and used his prize money to establish the William Faulkner Foundation, one of the goals of which was to establish a Fund to support and encourage new fiction writers. The Foundation's inaugural award for a "notable first novel," was originally called the William Faulkner Foundation Award and was won by John Knowles's 1961 novel "A Separate Peace". The novel centers on three Japanese-Americans who take their band to Japan just prior to the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. They are unable to leave after the War starts and are forced to join the Japanese Military and are sent to the Philippines to fight. Copies are quite scarce to the trade and are especially so when in a condition as nice as is this copy. [75]. Near fine. Item #3248
