New York: Harper & Row, (1987). First U.S. edition. Paperback. An uncorrected proof of the author's first book. Laid in is a TLS from Ted Solotaroff to Gilbert Sorrentino dated November 3, 1986 on the publisher's letterhead which reads: "Dear Gil / I think that Jim Crace is a writer you'll find you have / a real affinity with. He writes about a "seventh" continent that he has invented, a Third world of the imagin- / ation. Though this is Crace's first book, it has been / having a major impact in England, and I'm hoping for the / same effect here -- more than hoping. I'm way out on / a limb on this and do need support / Best, Ted". Ted Solotaroff was a senior editor at Harper & Row. Perfect bound in the original brown printed wrappers. A very good plus clean copy with a half-inch strip across the top of the rear panel darkened from sun (having a smaller book next to it). Item #14466
