A handsome first Impression of the first edition in unread Fine condition in Near Fine dust-wrapper with little creasing to bottom and top of spine and small closed tears. SIGNED by author Salman Rushdie directly on the title page.

Fury is a work of explosive energy, at once a pitiless and pitch-black comedy, a profoundly disturbing inquiry into the darkest side of human nature, and a love story of mesmerizing force. It is also an astonishing portrait of New York. Not since the Bombay of Midnight's Children have a time and place been so intensely and accurately captured in a novel.
