1 Smith, Sid Something Like a House
London, United Kingdom Picador 2001 0330480308 / 9780330480307 First Edition Hardcover 
As New in an As New dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. The spine is stamped in white. Lavender endpapers. 216pps. First Printing. This is a flawless, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; absolutely no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dust jacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is equally fine; the original price is intact. Winner of the 2001 Whitbread First Novel Award.

"Set in a China almost unknown to the outside world, 'Something Like A House' is Jim Fraser's story: an extraordinary, often chilling account of his life as an army deserter living through the terrible upheavals of the Cultural Revolution, when China descended into a moral and physical chaos so extreme that cannibalism became, for some, the only way of survival. Unable to speak the language and totally ignorant of local customs, Fraser makes his home in a community so isolated that even the Cultural Revolution impinges little on the ways of the villagers and the attitudes of his new companions. Except that the village's very isolation has made it the perfect location for experiments of sheer, indescribable terror."

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. Thanks for your interest in Nooks Of Books. X03-E.
