London, Sceptre, 2004. First Edition. First Impression. A near fine copy of one of the 21st century's finest works. Signed by the author to the title page without inscription. Presented with the wrap-around band, often absent. A lovely copy of one of the rare times that a work of speculative fiction was chosen for the Booker prize. Band a little rubbed, [5729, Hyraxia Books].
