"Readers can wallow in this glorious novel's metaphoric and oh-so au courant messages about U.S. domination, freedom of the press, torture and environmental abuse, but they also can come to this novel just for the story" (USA Today). "A nonstop thrill ride as well as a disturbing, moving meditation on our capacity for good and evil" (Publishers Weekly). "Hard as this thing is to hoist, it's even harder to put down" (New York Times). Published simultaneously with a Collector's Edition (25,000 copies) and a Signed Edition (1,500 copies).
Book fine, dust jacket very nearly so with only a few faint scratches to rear panel. A handsome signed copy.
