Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: Book by Henderson Eleanor

Críticas: "Henderson's debut...[is] well worth watching."--Library Journal

"A bold debut...[with] a powerful moral imagination."--Kirkus Reviews

"Henderson's powerful, surprising look at lost teens trying to course-correct with the violence-tinged straight-edge culture captivates via its authentic reassurance that adolescence is an often reckless ride to adulthood."--Library Journal

"Eleanor Henderson is in possession of an enormous talent which she has matched up with skill, ambition, and a fierce imagination. The resulting novel, TEN THOUSAND SAINTS, is the best thing I've read in a long time. "--Ann Patchett, bestselling author of Bel Canto and State of Wonder

"A panoramic view of how the imperfect escape from our parents' mistakes makes (equally imperfect) adults of us...[Henderson displays] a nervy voice adept at etching the outlines of a generation, its prejudices and pandemics, and the idols killed along the way."--Publishers Weekly

"TEN THOUSAND SAINTS is funny, touching, artistic, surprising, lovely, eye-opening, and very, very wise."--Arthur Phillips, author of PRAGUE and THE TRAGEDY OF ARTHUR

"I loved TEN THOUSAND SAINTS; again and again I was stopped cold by beautiful chapter-ending sentences. I remember this Manhattan, the Sunday matinees at CB's, the rage over Yuppies colonizing the East Village. "--Dean Wareham, lead singer of Galaxie 500 and Luna, author of BLACK POSTCARDS

"The magic of Henderson's debut lies in the way she so completely captures the experience of coming-of-age in the turbulent and exciting era that was the 1980s."--Booklist

"In her debut novel, set in the 1980s in New York's Lower East Side, the author takes on the timeless issues of youthful rebellion, family dynamics and coming to terms with one's own identity. "--Los Angeles Times

"Vibrant...a set of achingly real characters... whom she writes about with care and affection, digging below rough exteriors to find the source of their anger, frustration, boredom and indifference.... [Henderson] proves herself at the same time a deft and promising storyteller."--BookPage

Buchbeschreibung New York City, NY: Ecco Press, 2011. Hardcover. Zustand: Fine. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 388 pages. Published in 2011. The author's breakthrough debut novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. 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 that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Eleanor Henderson's "Ten Thousand Saints". A "coming-of-age" novel with a dramatic twist. The twist, which the saintly title alludes to, is that instead of being about sex, drugs, and rock n' roll, it is about no-sex, no-drugs, and hardcore punk, the extreme opposite of American "youth culture" urban subculture. Set in the 1980's at the height of the AIDS crisis, which Henderson vividly evokes, the young characters are members of a burgeoning cult group called Straight Edge (as opposed to cutting-edge), which has thousands of loyal followers who, going against both Nature and Nurture, voluntarily adopt an ascetic, rigidly self-imposed, no-nonsense ban on premarital sex and the use of drugs, but are fanatically devoted to underground punk culture. It's a defiant gesture, not just rebellion but full-fledged rejection of both their elders' and peers' embrace of tolerant, liberal, and secular values that the reader comes to admire grudgingly for its ferocity and purity. "Henderson does not hold back once: She writes the hell out of every moment, every scene, every perspective, every fleeting impression, every impulse, and every desire. She is never ironic or underwhelmed; her preferred mode is fierce, devoted, and elegiac" (The New York Times Magazine). "Again and again, I was stopped cold by beautiful chapter-ending sentences. I remember this Manhattan, the Sunday matinees at CB's, the rage over Yuppies colonizing the East Village" (Dean Wareham). There are whole shelves of books on sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. Here is a radiant, affecting, and exceptional novel that recaptures for posterity a crucial moment from the past that continues to reverberate in, be felt by, and influence the present. The basis of the film adaptation by the directorial team of Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, with Ethan Hawke, Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, and Emile Hirsch. An absolute "must-have" title for Eleanor Henderson collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and dated (in the month and year of publication) in black ink-pen on the title page by the author: "Eleanor Henderson NYC 3/12/12". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Announcement of the event during which her signature was obtained. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, placed, and dated copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Almost ALL other copies available online are subsequent printings. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine copy.
