'An extraordinary novel. One of the most important to come out of the English-speaking world in this generation.' (Robert Towers, The New York Times Book Review)
The initial UK printing of this book was abandoned at proof when it was discovered that the copy text had been an early draft and not the finished version. (Which being the reason UK proofs of the Cape run were recalled, are of the utmost scarcity and of considerable value). To meet the publication schedule Cape acquired 2500 sets of sheets from the US printing issuing them with a UK title page as in the present example. The Booker of Bookers. A masterpiece.
