A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, of the Unpublished Proofs / Uncorrected Proof for the first edition, first printing (some cover soiling, tiny split where the front wrapper's bottom left corner meets the spine panel; Pineda's DEBUT NOVEL, a work which won the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction awarded by the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, the Commonwealth Club of California Gold Medal [other winners of the Medal include John Steinbeck, Wallace Stegner, Diane Johnson, Ray Bradbury, Robert Hass, Kevin Starr, T.C. Boyle, Amy Tan, Jared Diamond, Czeslaw Milosz, C.S. Forester, Michael Chabon, William T. Vollmann, Kay Ryan, Ishmael Reed, Khaled Hosseini, and others], and a National Book Award Nomination. In "Face, the protagonist experiences a recurring dream in which he notices a newspaper floating just under the surface of the water with the headline reading: "AN UNCLEAR ACCIDENT HAD HAPPENED TO HIM." Of this highly-notable Debut Novel, J. M. Coetzee (winner of the 2003 Nobel Prize in Literature) stated: "When I read Face in 1985, it struck me as an extraordinary achievement, all the more extraordinary for being a first novel. Rereading it has not changed my estimate....Face continues to haunt me." Copies of the Unpublished Proofs of his award-winning Debut Novel are, in our experience, quite difficult to find. A Very Good + to Near Fine copy. QUITE SCARCE. [45rr]
