First Edition. REVIEW COPY, with slip laid in, INSCRIBED by Harris to Jamaican novelist, Andrew Salkey, on the front endpaper: "Andrew Salkey / Very best wishes, admiration and respect / Wilson Harris." A tremendous association between two important Caribbean writers who were also both highly respected intellectuals.Harris was born in Guyana, and began as a poet, moving into essays and highly abstract, metaphorical fiction in the latter part of his life. His themes often involve conquest and colonization, and he coined the phrase "quantum fiction" to describe his experimental approach to writing. Salkey, who passed away in 1995, was born in Panama and raised in Jamaica, ultimately teaching in England, then Amherst, Massachusetts in his final years. Salkey, like Harris, was politically active throughout his career, particularly in matters relating to Caribbean and African identity in the world. He authored over 30 books, including novels for adults and children, poetry collections, anthologies, travelogues, and essays. Offsetting to the endpapers, toning and light soil to the jacket, else Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. N° de ref. de la librería 131970
