New York: Harper Collins, 2002. First American Edition. Half-Cloth Paper Covered Boards (Hardcover). Near Fine/in a near fine dust jacket. 23.5 cm. The book shows shelf wear and light bumping to heel of spine. Otherwise a very handsome copy. This is a fictionalized account of Gao Xingjian's life in China, during the revolution under Mao Zedong.

Synopsis

E-book extras: "No -isms": A Conversation with Gao Xingjian; "Translating Gao: Mabel Lee on Gao Xingjian."One Man's Bible is the second novel by Nobel Prize-winning author Gao Xingjian to appear in English.
