Description:
London, England: Atlantic Books, 2004. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. London, England: Atlantic Books, 2004. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 170 pages. The author's third novel. One of Damon Galgut's finest achievements. The first appearance of the title in the United Kingdom and in its definitive Revised Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only in 2004, nine years after the 1995 First Edition, which was issued in South Africa only. As the DJ Cover indicates and the text of the Inside Flap confirms, the publication was prompted by the success of the author's fourth novel, "The Good Doctor", the year before, in 2003. In other words, it might never have seen the light of day in the rest of the English-speaking world were it not for the latter novel's success. The American and Canadian Editions were… Read More

First Edition/First Printing. 271 pages. Landmark study on subject. One of the best books on opera ever written in our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only by a small independent press. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Wayne Koestenbaum's "The Queen's Throat: Opera, Homosexuality, And The Mystery of Desire". An idiosyncratic and masterly account on opera. The book began as one brilliant essay on Mozart that the great literary critic and novelist Susan Sontag included in her selection of the Best American Essays of the Year 1992. It is surely (if somewhat uneasily for opera's heterosexual devotees) the definitive book on the connection between opera and… Read More
