New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, (1968).
First edition. Translated by Patrick O'Brian. Bottom corners bumped, else near fine in a very good or better dustwrapper with a couple of small tears and some modest age-toning. Inscribed by the author. Novel by an Argentine-born Russian who became a naturalized Frenchman. Among his other novels was Belle de Jour. This book was the basis for the interesting 1971 John Frankenheimer film scripted by Dalton Trumbo and starring Omar Sharif as a young Afghan desperate to prove himself to his sheik father, played by Jack Palance.
