Ty-Casper, Linda. WINGS OF STONE. New York City, NY: Readers International, 1986. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 170 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's most brilliant novel. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the paperback edition. Published in a very small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. Set against the corruption of the Marcos regime, this is a novel of world-class stature and cemented the author's international reputation. "Ty-Casper's prose glitters. This is a riveting story of the Philippines in the last years of the Marcos era" (Publishers Weekly). As may be found in all her previous work, Linda Ty-Casper's concern as a novelist is the relation between the individual (and his right to a private life) and destiny, the inescapable and often brutal grip of History on him. Linda Ty-Casper has a degree in law from Harvard University but never practiced, deciding instead to devote herself to literature. A "must-have" title for Linda Ty-Casper collectors. This title has been out-of-print for a very long time and is now collectible. This is one of extremely few copies of the true First Edition still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A very scarce copy thus. One of the most accomplished Filipino writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LINDA TY-CASPER TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0930523261. $30.00
