The Places In Between
(London), Picador, (2004). A highly praised memoir of traveling by foot across Afghanistan in 2002, just after the fall of the Taliban. Stewart's book won the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize and was selected by the New York Times as one of its 10 best books of the year, in all categories. A bestseller when it was reprinted in paperback, the hardcover edition is scarce and the first printing virtually unknown; one suspects that the majority of them went to libraries as they seldom appear on the market. Fine in a fine dust jacket but for a minor softening to the spine crown. [#035689] $150
