1 Desai, Anita Baumgartner's Bombay
New York Knopf 1989 0394572297 / 9780394572291 First American Edition/First Printing Fine  Fine Signed by Author
This copy has been neatly SIGNED by Anita Desai on the title page. With the same power to immerse us in the reality she creates, Anita Desai draws upon her double heritage as child of a German mother and Indian father to tell the story of a German Jew who has fled the Holocaust to remake his life in India. With its unusual intensity of vision—a story told, a world perceived, from both the inside and the outside—"Baumgartner's Bombay" provides a brilliantly three-dimensional portrait not only of India but of our century's nationless wanderers.

2 Desai, Anita Fire on the Mountain
New York Harper & Row 1977 006011066X / 9780060110666 First U.S. Edition/First Printing Near Fine  Near Fine Signed by Author
This copy has been neatly SIGNED by Anita Desai on the title page. "Fire on the Mountain" is rich, sensual and spare, an intimate drama that brings India near, however mysterious. Set in the Simla hills, the novel has three central characters: the aged Nanda Kaul, a woman remote in her self-imposed solitude; her great-granddaughter, the strange child Raka, equally withdrawn and lizard-like, her silence deafening; and Ila Das, Nanda Kaul's only friend, a broken woman whose shrieking hysteria shatters that eerie silence. A wonderfully observed portrayal of Indian life, and an unforgettable portrait of old age, a remarkable novel. Her debut, here published for the first time in the US.

3 Desai, Anita Games at Twilight
New York Harper & Row 1978 0060110791 / 9780060110796 First U.S. Edition/First Printing Fine  Near Fine (price-clipped) Signed by Author
This copy has been neatly SIGNED by Anita Desai on the title page. Eleven short stories - witty, evocative, tender, perceptive - by the author of the highly acclaimed "Fire on the Mountain" and written with the same blend of toughness and poetic imagination. Here are the colours, smells, sounds of India and here, too, are some intensely individual characters: a painter who fills his canvasses with birds and flowers he has never seen. Price-clipped dustjacket.

4 Desai, Anita In Custody
New York Harper & Row 1984 0060390387 / 9780060390389 First American Edition/First Printing Fine  Fine Signed by Author
This copy has been neatly SIGNED by Anita Desai on the title page. "In Custody" according to The Times (London) "is a wonderfully sensuous Song of Experience: life grating against art; friendships and intellectual riches tarnishing under the wretched indignities of poverty." Short-listed for Britain's celebrated Booker Prize it was also made into a film by Merchant Ivory Productions in 1983.

5 Desai, Anita Journey to Ithaca
London Heinemann 1995 0434002445 / 9780434002443 First U.K. Edition/First Printing Fine  Fine Signed by Author
The "true" first edition - this copy has been neatly SIGNED by Anita Desai on the title page. This entrancing novel explores the ambiguous nature of divine and profane love. Cunningly structured, beautifully evocative, the novel is rich with the sounds, smells, and sights of Italy and India, and it draws the reader into the heart of the most untranslatable of human experiences.
