Cannibals of West Papua (signed By the author)

[Germany]: Zagava, 2015. Limited Edition. Octavo. Item #027322

198 pages, signed on bookplate on front pastedown, number 27 of a limited edition of 124. Though it is a sequel to his 2005 The Translation of Father Torturo, it can be read on its own since it expands the vision in a unique way. Cannibals of West Papua is his latest novel and what a novel it is! It's an excellent adventure novel with plenty of blood, beautiful prose, surprises and intriguing fantastical elements. When it is discovered that in the dark primitivism of the Papuan jungle there is similarities between the haruspex in a pagan altar and the professor working on a dissecting table of a ultra-modern laboratory. A brilliant conception of the ancient past and the nightmares of modern science.Bound in decorative green paper covered boards lettered in gilt, spine lettering gilt. A fine copy.
