Independence Day (signed by the Author on the Title page)
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1995. First Edition. Octavo. Item #029984
. Signed by the author. 451 pages. Walker Percy called this "a stunning novel". Far better to read this than to watch what is probably only a better than average movie. What Ford describes is an America that has lost its way yet in some fundamental sense while hope is put on hold, civility is in disrepair, and violence and ugliness are everywhere, he finds hope. One of the finest novels of the late 20th century. A fine copy bound in 1/4 dark blue cloth over tan paper covered boards stamped in gilt, spine lettering gilt, in a fine unclipped dust jacket.
