Available From More sellersView all copies of this book
1st Printing. 170 pages. Published in 1986. The author's novel on the Marcos Era. Now considered a late-modern classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the Softcover Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Linda Ty-Casper's "Wings of Stone". Her ferocious indictment of state-sponsored corruption and criminality. Set against the corruption of the Marcos regime, this is a novel of world-class stature and cemented the author's international reputation. "Ty-Casper's prose glitters. This is a riveting story of the Philippines in the last years of the Marcos era" (Publishers Weekly). As may be found in all her previous work, Linda Ty-Casper's concern as a novelist is the relation between the individual (and his right to a private life) and the inescapable and often brutal grip of History on him. Linda Ty-Casper has a degree in law from Harvard University but never practiced, deciding instead to devote herself to literature. An absolute "must-have" title for Linda Ty-Casper collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the most accomplished Filipino writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LINDA TY-CASPER TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0930523261. Bookseller Inventory # 69
