The author's second novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. The American Edition appears in mid-2016. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Sunjeev Sahota's "The Year of The Runaways". "A sweeping, urgent contemporary epic, set against a vast geographical and historical canvas, astonishing for its richness and texture and scope, and for the utter immersiveness of its reading experience. Unfolds over the course of one shattering year in which the destinies of the characters become irreversibly entwined, a year in which they are forced to rely on one another in ways they never could have foreseen, and in which their hopes of breaking free of the past are decimated by the punishing realities of immigrant life" (Publisher's blurb). "All you can do is surrender, happily, to its power" (Salman Rushdie DJ Cover Blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Sunjeev Sahota collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Sunjeev Sahota. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Program and Bookmark of the event during which his signature was obtained. This title will become a contemporary classic. This is one of few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant living novelists. A fine copy. . ISBN 1447241649. $100.00
