If You Could See Me Now

Peter Straub


One of the greatest ghost stories of the 1970s, If You Could See Me Now is a haunting and beautiful story of love and regret, an opportunity for a second chance, and the realization that the past can never be changed. It is also a chilling and devastating account of revenge and obsession.

The book also features an afterword by Thomas Tessier, a reprint of the original 1977 dustjacket, a photograph of Peter Straub, a bonus short story by Straub (the bizarre Variations on a Theme from Seinfeld) and an interview with Peter Straub by Jay Gregory. The book is elegantly typeset and has a rounded back, top-edge stain, ribbon marker, and printed endsheets.
       Over 7 × 10 inches, printed silk front panel, Japanese cloth on back panel, top-edge stain, ribbon marker, printed endsheets, full color photographs, 300 + pages, and a stunning and simple design. Each book is signed by Peter Straub, J.K. Potter, and Thomas Tessier.
