Publisher: New York, Open Road: 2014

Edition: Uncorrected Proof

Seller ID: 003006


A lovely collectible copy, this is an uncorrected proof of Five Portraits. New from publisher. From the author: "Five Portraits is a kind of sequel to Board Stiff in that it picks up where the other leaves off, with the same characters. Apart from that, it's one of my favorites within the series... I like the theme of power of unlikely friendships. Not just Xanth, but Mundania, too, would be better if there were more such friendships." View more info
