Breytenbach, Breyten. MEMORY OF SNOW AND OF DUST. New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1989. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 308 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's autobiographical novel. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "A modern novel by the acclaimed author, complex and allusive. Both a gripping investigation of the South African predicament and also a meditation on exile, betrayal, love, and creation" (Publisher's blurb). A "must-have" title for Breyten Breytenbach collectors. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time and is now collectible. This is one of relatively few copies of the First American Edition still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the finest South African writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BREYTEN BREYTENBACH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374207666. $20.00
