A Ghost In The Throat

Dublin: The Tramp Press, (2020). First edition. Soft Cover. Fine / Fine. Original wrappers, as issued. So called - "French Flaps" - which is to say the soft cover has flaps that extend inside the front and rear covers. This volume is from the scarce limited edition issued with a dust jacket - another very striking addition to a soft-covered title. From a limited edition of 500 copies, this one being number 44. The limitation information, along with the author's signature are on the inside flap of the dust jacket. The author has also signed the title page. Honestly, one of the most exquisite reading experiences of my life. I purchased a reading copy and have since passed it on to a niece. This book has garnered so many awards they are difficult to count - to name only a few - A Ghost In The Throat has won the James Tait Black Biography Prize, the Irish Book of the Year, A Guardian Best Book of 2020 and many more, both awards and nominations. This copy remains unopened and unread. This book is a biography, but it is also a memoir and yet it is also a book of poetry in translation. Simply put - this book is a marvel.
