9780140142211: The Law of White Spaces

A mesmerizing and frightening work of fiction like no other, The Law of White Spaces comprises five compelling case studies unified by their obsession with what Oliver Sacks has called "the quintessential human condition of sickness." Gentle in their telling, at times quietly erotic,always savagely honest, these stories-about loss and desire, family and love-point to mysteries beyond the certainties of science and language.

From the Back Cover:

"An intensely touching book about the spirits of illness that inhabit people, waiting for their moment to mystify and challenge the logic of love and time. Pressburger conveys this sad, exotic idea with economy and rueful humour." - The Guardian

Book Description Granta, UK, 1992. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First British Edition; First Printing. 172 pages; Fine/Fine. Full number sequence. Black boards with bright silver lettering. Boards are straight, tips are pointed, spine is square and pages are clean. DJ is great! In protective sleeve. An excellent gift! The Law of White Spaces introduces some of the most exotic writing about illness since Oliver Sacks's Awakenings. Gentle in their telling, ruthlessly honest in their conclusions, these stories testify to one's character's declaration that Everything is written in the white spaces between one letter and the next. The rest doesn't count. Bookseller Inventory # 13038
