WARTIME LIES. A Novel.

New York: Knopf, 1991. First edition. Hardcover. Author's first book, this copy signed by Begley on the title page. Winner of the Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award, as well as the French version, Une education polonaise, which won the Prix Medicis etranger in 1992. Stanley Kubrick almost went into production on a film of this book, and he even penned the screenplay, titled Aryan Papers. But, he chose not to make the film due to the release of Steven Spielberg's Holocaust-themed Schindler's List in 1993. (Kubrick eventually concluded that an accurate film about the Holocaust was beyond the capacity of cinema). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #ESB12362
