The Discomfort of Evening [PROOF COPY]
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.
