1 Disgrace
Coetzee, J. M. ; with an introduction by Christopher Hope and illustrations by Andrew Gibson The Folio Society London 2011 Hardcover Fine Slipcase Fine Book 
Hardback with slipcase, both in excellent, fine condition. Shrinkwrapped. Bound in brown cloth and presented in a plain black slipcase. 224pp. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1999. 23.5cm. After years teaching Romantic poetry at the Technical University of Cape Town, David Lurie, middle-aged and twice divorced, has an impulsive affair with a student. The affair sours; he is denounced and summoned before a committee of inquiry. Willing to admit his guilt, but refusing to yield to pressure to repent publicly, he resigns and retreats to his daughter Lucy's isolated smallholding. For a time, his daughter's influence and the natural rhythms of the farm promise to harmonise his discordant life. But the balance of power in the country is shifting. He and Lucy become victims of a savage and disturbing attack which brings into relief all the faultlines in their relationship. 306925

8 A Burning Hunger: One Family's Struggle Against Apartheid
Schuster, Lynda Jonathan Cape 2004 0224041681 / 9780224041683 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Original black boards. Both the book and dust jacket are in clean and tight condition. No names, inscriptions or other marks. Pages ever so slightly tanned / darkened. Dust jacket not price clipped. 451pp. On 16 June 1976 the youth of Soweto rose up in protest against a new rule making Afrikaans the language of instruction in their schools. Tsietsi Mashinini, a charismatic high-school student, led them in demonstrations that quickly turned into South Africa?s biggest rebellion. Tsietsi?s actions on that day set in motion a chain of events that forever changed not only the country, but his family as well. From that moment forward, the Mashinini name became the stuff of legends; many of Tsietsi?s 12 siblings and even his parents, law-abiding, church-going citizens, found themselves pulled inexorably into the fight against apartheid. A Burning Hunger tells the story of this remarkable family - a story of black South Africa in microcosm, embracing just about every facet of the liberation struggle. If the Mandelas were the generals in the fight for black liberation, the Mashininis were the foot soldiers. Theirs is a story not only of imprisonment, torture, separation and loss; it also one of dignity, courage and strength in the face of appalling adversity. A Burning Hunger will become one of the seminal books about the struggle against apartheid. The dust jacket is supplied in a loose protective clear film sleeve. 055398

3 Reading with Patrick, a True Story: A Teacher, A Student and the Life-Changing Power of Books
Kuo, Michelle Macmillan 2017 1447286073 / 9781447286073 First UK Edition Hardcover New New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
New hardback with dust jacket. RRP 16.99. First impression, UK edition. As a young English teacher keen to make a difference in the world, Michelle Kuo took a job at a tough school in the Mississippi Delta, sharing books and poetry with a young African-American teenager named Patrick and his classmates. For the first time, these kids began to engage with ideas and dreams beyond their small town, and to gain an insight into themselves that they had never had before. Two years later, Michelle left to go to law school; but Patrick began to lose his way, ending up jailed for murder. And that's when Michelle decided that her work was not done, and began to visit Patrick once a week, and soon every day, to read with him again. Reading with Patrick is an inspirational story of friendship, a coming-of-age story for both a young teacher and a student, an expansive, deeply resonant meditation on education, race and justice, and a love letter to literature and its power to transcend social barriers. pp. xxi, 296. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 306875

9 Frankenstein, Or The Modern Prometheus. The 1818 Text
Shelley, Mary ; edited with an introduction and notes by Nick Groom Oxford University Press 2018 0198814046 / 9780198814047 First Thus Hard Cover New No jacket Book 8vo - over 7 
New hardback. White cloth. RRP. 14.99. First impression of this new edition. By the dim and yellow light of the moon, as it forced its way through the window-shutters, I beheld the wretch-the miserable monster whom I had created. He held up the curtain of the bed; and his eyes, if eyes they may be called, were fixed on me. His jaws opened... Frankenstein is the most celebrated horror story ever written. It tells the dreadful tale of Victor Frankenstein, a visionary young student of natural philosophy, who discovers the secret of life. In the grip of his obsession he constructs a being from dead body parts, and animates this creature. The results, for Victor and for his family, are catastrophic. Written when Mary Shelley was just eighteen, Frankenstein was inspired by the ghost stories and vogue for Gothic literature that fascinated the Romantic writers of her time. She transformed these supernatural elements into an epic parable that warned against the threats to humanity posed by accelerating technological progress. Published for the 200th anniversary, this edition, based on the original 1818 text, explains in detail the turbulent intellectual context in which Shelley was writing, and also investigates how her novel has since become a byword for controversial practices in science and medicine, from manipulating ecosystems to vivisection and genetic modification. As an iconic study of power, creativity, and, ultimately, what it is to be human, Frankenstein continues to shape our thinking inprofound ways to this day. 223 x 142 x 30 (mm). pp. 226. BK0003 
Price: 13.49 GBP
