Descripción

First Edition, First Printing. Book is fine except for a small scratch across fore edge and an ink spot on lower paste down. Dustwrapper with minimal rubbing along spine ends. Signed by the author on the title page below his printed name; judging from the signature in the early 80ies. Rushdie's first book, a complete dud, as promising as Raymond Chandler as a young love poet. Laid in is a note from Gollancz to reviewers announcing publication on 6 February 1975. CHF 1'200. This item is part of our Catalogue 4: The Rushdie Collection, which you can download at ygrbooks.ch. N° de ref. de la librería 000024

Sinopsis:

Flapping Eagle is a young Axona Indian gifted with immortal life after drinking an elixir from his wayward sister. But after 777 years of sailing the world's seas, he becomes weary of life, and sets out to find the mystical Calf Island, a place where his fellow immortals have gathered and created their own version of the human race. But Calf Island is a strange place - like its inhabitants, it is both blessed and cursed. Sensing a terrible darkness at the heart of the island, Flapping Eagle sets out to scale the island's peak and confront its mysterious and potent creator, Grimus himself.

From the Back Cover:

“A fireworks of a book: beautiful, funny, and endlessly surprising.” —Ursula K. Le Guin

“A mixture of science fiction and folktale, past and future, primitive and present-day. . . . Thunderous and touching.” —Financial Times

“Grimus is one of those novels some people will say is too good to be science fiction, even though it contains other universes, dimensional doorways, alien creatures, and more than one madman. . . . A book to be read twice . . . Grimus is science fiction in the best sense of the word. It is literate, it is fun, it is meaningful, and perhaps most important, it pushes the boundaries of the form outward.” —Los Angeles Times

“Ambitious, strikingly confident.” —The Times Literary Supplement
