FIRST AMERICAN COLLECTED EDITION, DELUXE LIMITED ISSUE, one of 200 copies signed by Auster; designed by Guy Bennett. These important meta-detective novels were originally published in 1985 and 1986. Employing elements of the nouveau roman and postmodernism, the trilogy is ultimately a genre of its own, and is rightly considered Auster's defining work, and one of the great works of American fiction in the 1980s.
