About This Item

New York: Pantheon, 1994. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Light fading to a small section of blue top stain, yet still rich in color. Light rubbing to dust jacket front and rear panels. Signed on the title page by the author. Author's second book of fiction and second novel. "Good Benito is a wonderfully original, deeply moving, and wryly funny novel about the clash between the absolutes of science and the vagaries of human experience." -from the dust jacket. Lightman's novel Einstein's Dreams was an international bestseller and has been translated into thirty languages. It was runner up for the 1994 PEN New England / Boston Globe Winship Award. Einstein's Dreams was also the March 1998 selection for National Public Radio's "Talk of the Nation" Book Club. The novel has been used in numerous colleges and universities, in many cases for university-wide adoptions in "common-book" programs, and is one of the mostly widely used texts in American colleges today. More than two dozen independent theatrical and musical productions have been based on Einstein's Dreams. Lightman's novel The Diagnosis was a finalist for the 2000 National Book Award in fiction and has been adopted by high school teachers of Advanced Placement English. In 2007 Lightman released his most recent novel, Ghost, an examination of the dichotomies of the physical world and the spiritual world, scepticism and faith, the natural and the supernatural, and science and religion. In 2009, Lightman published his first volume of poetry, a book-length narrative in verse titled "Song of Two Worlds."
