Hardcover first edition, first printing. Stated First Edition with "1" present in complete number line. Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy. Winner of the 2004 Nebula Award for Best Novel. Boards and jacket moderately bumped at upper corners with crinkling at head and heel of spine panel. Page block shows faint handling-related wear. Several small dents in top and side edge of page block. Slight spine lean, which is common with this tilte. Overall, a near fine copy in near fine jacket. "'If I had not been what I am, what would I have been?'" wonders Lou Arrendale, the autistic hero of Moon's compelling exploration of the concept of "normalcy" and what might happen when medical science attains the knowledge to "cure" adult autism. Arrendale narrates most of this book in a poignant earnestness that verges on the philosophical and showcases Moon's gift for characterization." - Publisher's Weekly. "Moon is effective at putting the reader inside Lou's mind, and it is both fascinating and painful to see the behavior and qualities of so-called normals through his eyes." - Meredith Parets, American Library Association. Award History: 2004 Nebula Award Winner for Best Novel; Locus Magazine: Best of 2003 Recommended Reading List for Science Fiction Novels; Amazon.com Top Ten Books of 2003 - Science Fiction & Fantasy.
