This book is brand new and has never been read. It is signed by the author in the book as well as on the certificate of authenticity. The Ice Storm is a provocative novel of suburban family life. In 1973, a fierce winter storm bears down on New Canaan, Connecticut, home to the Hood and Williams families. These two-parent, two- child households unravel as the weekend storm rages. A neighborhood "key-swapping" party brings the story to a chaotic end with a physical tragedy and emotional damage to both families. The Ice Storm is a modern classic and this is a very fine book. This beautiful book is bound in full-tooled deep gray leather with satin moiré endpapers, satin ribbon bookmark and 22kt gold on the spine. Beautiful gilt designs ornament the front as well as the back boards. The paper was made especially for this edition. The leather was cut entirely by hand. It includes a certificate of authenticity and a 4x6 card laid in with biographical information as well as a few words about the book itself. Published by Easton Press it is a volume of heirloom quality and will be treasured for generations to come. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
