Lost Paradise

Nooteboom, Cees


1st Edition

Green cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Dust jacket seems very slightly tanned to edges. Otherwise fine. Translated from the Dutch by Susan Massotty. *** “Framed by masterful reflections on misunderstandings in life and literature, Nooteboom’s short work, at once delicate and chiseled, achieves a dreamlike suspension of time and place.” (Publisher’s Weekly) Art, travel, philosophy – one of Holland’s best-known writers is on fine form here. The Dutch title of this work is Paradijs verloren, a direct copy of the title of John Milton’s famous poem. (Paradise Lost would have been a more accurate translation.)
