Making History

Carolyn See


SEE, Carolyn. Making History. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1991. Octavo, original half black cloth gilt, original dust jacket. $125.

First edition of See’s “deeply affecting parable” of the American dream in southern California at the turn of the millennium, signed by the author (“Carolyn See!”).

See's fifth novel takes place in a Los Angeles "populated by dreamers, people who have migrated—from small valley towns, from Mexico, from the East and from countries across the ocean—to this hot, glittering city in hopes of changing their lives… [The book is] a fiercely observed and deeply affecting parable about the precariousness of contemporary life" (New York Times).

Dust jacket and front board slightly soiled. An about-fine signed copy.
