1 Craig, Amanda In a Dark Wood
New York Nan A. Talese/Doubleday 2002 (c.2000) 0-385-50262-1 / 9780385502627 1st U.S. edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dj Illustrated by (dj painting) Paolo Uccello 
[nice clean copy, with extremely light wear to bottom edge of book, tiny bump at top front corner; jacket shows a trace of surface wear]. The author's fourth novel (and first to be published in the U.S.) tells the story of a recently-divorced out-of-work actor on the brink of a nervous breakdown whose "life takes on a new direction when he discovers a long-forgotten book of fairy tales his mother wrote and illustrated decades earlier. Drawn to its pages, he becomes entranced by the hints of reality embedded in the stories, from thinly veiled portraits of his own father and his parents' acquaintances to alluring glimpses of his mother as a young woman. Convinced that the stories can explain his mother's suicide when he was six and put an end to his agonizing mood swings, [he] embarks on a journey to untangle the past, and journey that eventually takes him to the heart of his own nature, modern fatherhood, manic depression, and the elusive character of fairy tales."
