About this title


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).


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.
