July's People, Gordimer, Nadine
1 Gordimer, Nadine July's People
London, UK Jonathan Cape 1981 0224019325 / 9780224019323 First U.K. Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine 
This is a beautiful copy of the UK Edition of "July's People" by Nadine Gordimer. For years, it has been what is called a ''deteriorating situation.'' Now it is war. All over South Africa, cities are battlegrounds, and radio and television stations are under siege. Bam and Maureen Smales take up their servant July's suggestion and drive with their children to his remote home village. For fifteen years, July has been the decently treated black servant, totally dependent on them. Now, he becomes their host, their savior, and their keeper. Suddenly facing a hunted life of bare subsistence, owing their survival to July, the Smales are forced to look at him and at one another in an entirely new light. They find life utterly changed and harboring different dread and hope for each individual.

Life and Times of Michael K, J. M. Coetzee
2 J. M. Coetzee Life and Times of Michael K
New York, New York Viking Press 1984 0670427896 / 9780670427895 First Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine Signed by Author
This copy of "Life & Times of Michael K" has been SIGNED by J.M. Coetzee on the title page! We are taken into the world of Michael K, a young man unwillingly caught up in a war in South Africa. In this compelling yet simple story, written in beautiful spare prose, J. M. Coetzee goes to the center of human experience-the need for an interior, spiritual life; for some connections to the world in which we live; and for purity of vision. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1983. Coetzee was also awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature 2003. The only imperfection is a very slight corner "bump" (see scan) that doesn't detract from the overall beautiful condition of both the book and dustjacket.

Mirrors, Mahfouz, Naguib
3 Mahfouz, Naguib Mirrors
Cairo, Egypt The American University in Cairo Press 1999 9774245334 / 9789774245336 First Edition/First Printing (Thus) Hard Cover Fine Fine Wanli, Seif Signed by Author
This copy of "Mirrors" has been SIGNED by Naguib Mahfouz on the half-title page! "Mirrors" is one of Nobel Laureate Naguib Mahfouz's more unusual works. First published in a serialized form in the Egyptian television magazine, it consists of a series of vignettes of characters from a writer's life - a writer very like Mahfouz himself. And accompanying each vignette is a portrait of the character by a friend of the author, the renowned Alexandrian artist Seif Wanli. The apparently simple but penetrating portraits by Seif Wanli add an extra, distinctive dimension to this already intriguing book. They originally appeared with the serialized texts in the television magazine, but were omitted when the book was first published in 1972 and again when the English translation first appeared in 1977. Now, in this special edition, the pictures and the complete text appear together for the first time.
