On the day the world ends . . .
. . . Mau is on his way home from the Boys' Island. Soon he will be a man.
And then the wave comes - a huge wave, dragging black night behind it and bringing a schooner which sails over and through the island rainforest.
The village has gone.
The Nation as it was has gone.
Now there's just Mau, who wears barely anything, a trouserman girl who wears far too much, and an awful lot of big misunderstandings . . .
A near-fine first edition, with some slight push-in to top and bottom of spine, slight lean to spine, and a small impression to bottom of front board. In a very good unclipped dust jacket with some light bruising to edges, and small section at top of spine where image has been turned down.
All of our books that a have dust wrapper are covered in clear protective, removable film and are packed professionally in bubble wrap and a box for shipping so that they reach you in perfect condition.
