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. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Breyten Bryetenbach's "Memory of Snow And of Dust'. Complex and allusive, a modern novel by the acclaimed author. "Both a gripping investigation of the South African predicament and also a meditation on exile, betrayal, love, and creation" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Breyten Breytenbach collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (American) still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. It is one of the most beautiful copies we have ever seen. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BREYTEN BREYTENBACH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
