Soueif, Ahdaf Sandpiper
London Bloomsbury 1996 0747524815 / 9780747524816 First U.K. Edition/First Printing Fine Fine
"Sandpiper" is a compelling and complex study of perspective, ways of seeing, ways of feeling. The "true" first edition with the sewn-in bookmark. The book's cross-cultural tensions were seen from one woman's point of view: young, educated, sentimental and sardonic. In this new book of stories, Soueif boldly extends her range of vision.
