View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This is a luxurious box containing two books, a large book on Johannesburg, TJ, with astonishing pictures by David Goldblatt, and a smaller second book, Double Negative, with a novel by Ivan Vladislavic. This collection is an exceptional duo-edition in a special format—part fiction and part photo-essay.

The book is about Johannesburg and about life in the city, home, habit, change, memory, mortality, friendship, ghosts, gardens, walking, falling, selling, and stealing. It is a partial account of both authors' lives in their neighborhoods; it is a selective self-portrait.

David Goldblatt is the recipient of Henri Cartier-Bresson Award 2009 for this work.

Ivan Vladislavic is one of the most talented authors of South Africa.
