About this title

Synopsis:

Signed by Jim Crace on the title page. First printing of the First American Edition, the author's first book & winner of the Whitbread Award, the David Higham and the Guardian Prize for Fiction. An absolutely perfect copy; clean & bright, with no creases, no tears, and no markings. The dustjacket is also clean & bright, with no tears (original price present on the front flap).

Review:

To those who say there's nothing new to be written or read, Jim Crace has responded. For this provocative collection of short stories, Crace created a whole new continent. Unnamed and unspecified, the continent nevertheless resonates with characters, developments, contradictions and examinations of the path and power of progress. In one story electricity comes to a country in the form of a giant fan; in another a government agent out to exploit a primitive people discovers the beauty of traditional life. The book, which won a Whitbread Prize, takes us to a new world in a journey that causes us look more closely at our own.
