Winner of the James Baldwin Prize. A UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper: The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. It shows a touch of very slight toning and wear at the head of the spine and to the top edge of the front and back panels. Looks sharp.
Book: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded. The corners are sharp. The spine ends are gently bruised. The pages are very clean. The closed page edges are unmarked - they are slightly dulled. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
