Description

A Very Near Fine (some gentle bumping to the head and heel of the spine) of this prize-winning debut novel, in a Fine dust jacket (two tiny dents at the front joint). Born in Australia and reared in Mexico, the author's true name is Peter Warren Finlay, the "DBC" of his pen name standing for "Dirty But Clean" and "Pierre" being a childhood nickname given him by his friends (after a cartoon character of the same name). This, Findlay's debut novel, is a satire centered around a fifteen year old who goes on the run in Mexico after falsely being accused of murder in his small Texas town. The novel won the Guardian Prize as well as the Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 2003, making Finlay the third Australian to win the prize. (Thomas Keneally for "Schindler's Ark", and Peter Carey for "Oscar and Lucinda" as well as for "True History of the Kelly Gang" being the others). A nice copy of a prize-winning debut novel.
