1 Jin, Ha Under the Red Flag : Stories by Ha Jin (Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction Ser.)
Athens, GA, U.S.A. University of Georgia Press 1997 0820319392 / 9780820319391 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover SIGNED by the Author
As New in an As New dustjacket. This is the SIGNED edition, limited to 100 copies, of which this is #79. Bright red boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. Black endpapers. 207pps. A flawless, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is equally fine. ".Set in the northern Chinese provincial town of Dismount Fort, these twelve stories offer a fascinating glimpse into the lives of peasants, soldiers, workers, and party officials during the Great Cultural Revolution. This was a time of social upheaval reaching into every home, when the Red Guard could drag a woman accused of prostitution through the streets; when a man trying to honor his mother's dying wish runs up against party orthodoxy. Ha Jin has been compared to the late Isaac Babel for his spare evocation of ordinary lives caught up in the flux of vast social movements. He is a writer of stark power, simple beauty, and poignant irony, whose themes of personal honor in the face of political rectitude are unmatched in American literature today." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
