Gunesekera, Romesh : The Sandglass

The New Press, New York City, NY, 1998

ISBN 156584484X

First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 278 pages. The author's second novel. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Romesh Gunesekera's "The Sandglass". His marvellous "follow-up" novel, a triumphant achievement that deserves a much wider readership. His first novel was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 1994 and was widely praised on both sides of the Atlantic. The second book, just getting it written at all, is often the "acid test" for every writer. Gunesekera passes the test with flying colors. Born and raised in the Philippines, a Sri Lankan by nationality, and now London-based, Romesh Gunesekera is firmly established as a cult writer with a considerable international following. An absolute "must-have" title for Romesh Gunesekera collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially ine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. One of the most brilliant writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROMESH GUNESEKERA TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 156584484X.
