London: Jonathan Cape, 1986. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Very Good copy of the first UK edition, first printing (spine end pushed), in a Very Good + dust jacket, INSCRIBED, SIGNED, AND DATED BY JOSEPH OLSHAN on the tipped-in half-title as follows: "August 1989 // for tom Graham, / with all // Best Wishes, // Joseph Olshan"; the author's DEBUT NOVEL. Of the novel, the New York Times Book Review stated: “An impressive novel…. Clara’s Heart is notable precisely because of the risks Joseph Olshan has taken that do succeed, not the least of which is its sensitive and often comical treatment of the unique love between a precocious American boy and a wise, if tormented Jamaican woman.” Signed copies are uncommon to the market.
