Internally bright and clean. Overall very good condition. 256 pp. The author's sixth novel. "In 'The Volcanoes Above Us' Normal Lewis described the violent rejection of the West and all it stands for by a primitive tribe of Central American Indians. In his present novel he has carried to Algeria, 'the African frontier,' his scrutiny of the growing world reaction against the ideas, the presence and the 'benefits' of our civilization. His theme, in fact, as Cyril Connolly said of his earlier novel, is the meaning of civilization and progress." Rare, only one other copy on the market. This has been flat-signed. A collectable work.
