Descripción

Fine first printing in fine dustwrapper. The book is square, tight and seems unread. The dustwrapper is complete. Essentially an as-new copy but now over 20 years old. Small bookseller's label to rear panel. 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. N° de ref. de la librería 005951

Sinopsis:

In his latest novel, Julian Barnes, author of Talking It Over and A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters, trains his laser-bright prose on the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe.

Stoyo Petkanov, the deposed Party leader, is placed on trial for crimes that range from corruption to political murder. Petkanov's guilt -- and the righteousness of his opponents -- would seem to be self-evident. But, as brilliantly imagined by Barnes, the trial of this cunning and unrepentant dictator illuminates the shadowy frontier between the rusted myths of the Communist past and a capitalist future in which everything is up for grabs.

From the Back Cover:

"Barnes's novels have a mesmeric charm and an air of dangerous simplicity .... [He is] an exceptionally accomplished and ingenious stylist."
-- The New York Review of Books

"Gripping ... Barnes relates this compelling story with his usual narrative brio, sketching his characters with the broad, colorful strokes of a mythic allegory."
-- The New York Times

"Barnes is a dazzling mind in mercurial flight."
-- Philadelphia Inquirer
