Near fine first printing in fine dustwrapper. The book is square and tight but with some sporadic foxing to page edges. The text block also exhibits the age toning associated with Faber titles of this vintage. The dustwrapper is complete and unmarked. Signed by the author to the title page, without further inscription. As an enthusiastic collector myself, I make every effort to provide a high level of service. Enquiries welcomed.

Marco Stanley Fogg is an orphan, a child of the ‘60s, a quester tirelessly seeking the key to his past, the answers to the ultimate riddle of his fate. As Marco journeys from the canyons of Manhattan to the deserts of Utah, he encounters a gallery of characters and a series of events as rich and surprising as any in modern fiction.
Beginning during the summer that men first walked on the moon, and moving backward and forward in time to span three generations, Moon Palace is propelled by coincidence and memory, and illuminated by marvelous flights of lyricism and wit. Here is the most entertaining and moving novel yet from an author well known for his breathtaking imagination.
This production is part of our Audible Modern Vanguard line, a collection of important works from groundbreaking authors.
