First printing of the modern thriller, following FBI trainee Clarice Starling's increasingly chilling interviews with Hannibal Lecter while in search of a serial killer.
THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS
"If Lecter talks to you at all, he'll just be trying to find out about you. It's the kind of curiosity that makes a snake look in a bird's nest."
Hannibal Lecter was first introduced to readers in RED DRAGON (1981, on which the new TV series HANNIBAL was partly based), but the character is best known from this novel; the film adaptation with Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins won five Academy Awards. A less known but equally striking fact is that David Foster Wallace taught the book in his "Literary Interpretation" class at Pomona College. Winner of the Bram Stoker Award.
