From the Publisher

From the best-selling author of Brother, I'm Dying and The Dew Breaker: a stunning new work of fiction that brings us deep into the intertwined lives of a small seaside town where a little girl, the daughter of a fisherman, has gone missing.

Claire Limyè Lanmè-Claire of the Sea Light-is an enchanting child born into love and tragedy in Ville Rose, Haiti. Claire's mother died in childbirth, and on each of her birthdays Claire is taken by her father, Nozias, to visit her mother's grave. Nozias wonders if he should give away his young daughter to a local shopkeeper, who lost a child of her own, so that Claire can have a better life.

But on the night of Claire's seventh birthday, when at last he makes the wrenching decision to do so, she disappears. As Nozias and others look for her, painful secrets, haunting memories, and startling truths are unearthed among the community of men and women whose individual stories connect to Claire, to her parents, and to the town itself. Told with piercing lyricism and the economy of a fable, Claire of the Sea Light is a tightly woven, breathtaking tapestry that explores what it means to be a parent, child, neighbor, lover, and friend, while revealing the mysterious bonds we share with the natural world and with one another. Embracing the magic and heartbreak of ordinary life, it is Edwidge Danticat's most spellbinding, astonishing book yet.

Seller Comments:

Signed by Author. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 245 pages. As New in As New dust jacket. The author's fourth novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. Presents Edwidge Danticat's magical fourth novel. "In interlocking stories moving back and forth in time, Danticat weaves a beautifully rendered portrait of longing. The stories flow beautifully one into another, all rendered in the luminous prose for which Danticat is known" (Publisher's blurb). The lovely title is the English equivalent of the heroine's full name in French. Every book by Edwidge Danticat is quietly enthralling. It blows away the shallow and self-indulgent life stories of her fellow American writers, and deserves to be read by anyone who still cares about writing as literature. An absolute "must-have" title for Edwidge Danticat collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated (shortly after publication), and placed in black pen on the title page by the author: "Edwidge Danticat 9/22/2013 NYC". Laid-in are pristine copies of the Souvenir Program and Bookmark of the Brooklyn Book Festival 2013, during which the author's signature was obtained. This title will become a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed and dated copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A very scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Foundation Grant in 1998 for "The Farming of Bones". Finalist for the National Book Award in 2007 for "Brother, I'm Dying". Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of the "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". Winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant in 2009. One of the most brilliant living American writers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EDWIDGE DANTICAT TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 030727179X.
