RUSHDIE, Salman. Shame.

(New York, NY): Alfred A. Knopf, 1983.  First US edition.  Octavo.  319 pages.  The author’s third novel, a phantasmagoric epic of an unnamed country that is “not quite Pakistan.” A dazzling tale of an ongoing duel between the families of two men–one a celebrated wager of war, the other a debauched lover of pleasure– in which Rushdie brilliantly portrays a world caught between honour and humiliation“  A very good plus copy in dust jacket.
