New York: The New Press, 1996. Hard Cover. Good binding / Very Good+ dust jacket. Item #6419
Octavo. , 217 pp. First American edition; ex-library. In publisher's cloth-backed boards with dust jacket. A nice copy but for the library markings which are minimal--a top edge stamp and notation on the rear free endpaper, otherwise clean; the dust jacket is also quite fresh and retains the price on the front flap.
Winner of the 2021 Nobel Prize in literature, Gurnah was selected "for his uncompromising and compassionate penetration of the effects of colonialism and the fate of the refugee in the gulf between cultures and continents" (Nobel Prize website). First editions of Gurnah's work are scarce in the wake of his Nobel Prize.
