The Discomfort of Evening [PROOF COPY]

Rijneveld, Marieke Lucas


1st Edition
Soft cover

Uncorrected proof copy. Printed wrappers. Very slight lean to spine and some shallow creasing and minor soiling to covers. Tiny tear to tail of front cover. A near fine copy. This proof copy has a slightly different title from the published novel: The Discomfort of the Evening (rather than The Discomfort of Evening). Translated by Michele Hutchinson. *** A near fine proof copy of the UK edition of Rijneveld’s debut novel. Already a bestseller in the Netherlands, where it was published in 2018 under the title De avond is ongemak, the novel got a huge boost internationally after winning the 2020 International Booker Prize. It’s interesting to see that the title of the English translation must have changed at the last moment.
