[tiny dent in bottom edge of front cover, very slight bump to bottom front corner, still a nice-looking copy, tight and clean; jacket has the tiniest nick to match the dent, faint soiling]. SIGNED by the author on the half-title page. In this novel, the author "turns a conventional boy-meets-girl story into a brilliant comic romp. The hero of Fischer's tale is a bowl that comes into the possession of a young, lovelorn London art appraiser named Rosa. Rosa's bowl is no ordinary piece of clay, however: it is a ceramic sage, an urn of uncommon erudition that has witnessed all of history's major convulsions -- revolutions, famines, massacres, wars -- and has survived more than four hundred breakages and three thousand thefts. By investing his bowl with soul, Fischer gives a hilarious, mantel-eye view of depravity and redemption, sex and lust, burglary and archaeology." Signed by Author
