1 Murray, Sabina The Caprices
Boston Mariner Books / Houghton Mifflin 2001 0-618-17451-6 / 9780618174515 First Edition Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) 
Uncorrected Proofs. Fine in glossy pictorial wraps, trade-sized (pb). 210pps. Essentially as new with very light rubbing to the wraps, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. Yet to be read. An excellent copy. Winner of The Pen/Faulkner Award.

"...Set against the backdrop of the Pacific Campaign of World War II, 'The Caprices' is a history told through individual lives. Two American soldiers lost in New Guinea, divided by prejudice, discover what holds them together. A young Indian officer of mixed blood fights for the British in Malaysia. Amelia Earhart experiences her last days as the Japanese prepare for war. Influenced by family stories of the Japanese occupation of the Philippines, Sabina Murray brings to light a complex cast of civilians, soldiers, survivors, and conquerors. In stories that follow the reach of the United States into the heart of Asia and the pieces of war brought back through memory, 'The Caprices' makes us reflect on how our world has been shaped by this crucial period of history..."
