Ty-Casper, Linda : Awaiting Trespass: A Pasion
Readers International, New York City, NY, 1985
First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 180 pages. The author's breakthrough novel. 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 "Awaiting Trespass". Her masterpiece. Although extremely prolific, the Harvard-educated writer did not find an international audience until the publication of this novel. Banned in the Philippines during the Marcos regime, this is a novel of social satire and personal awakening seamlessly intertwined by the author: The story of two isolated people coming to find themselves in the midst of upheaval and the unintended social "message" of a controversial Papal Visit are effortlessly and beautifully evoked. 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 few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine 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 accomplished Filipino writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LINDA TY-CASPER TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0930523113.
