A professional mourner who has "traveled around his native South Africa grieving for the deaths of strangers," arrives in America, where he is "bewildered by the culture and fascinated by the strange family that takes him in as a guest." Mda has signed and dated this copy at the top of the title page, then written his initials over his printed name at the bottom. The uncorrected proof is uncommon, and any edition seems to be quite scarce signed. 312 pages. A bit of slant, mild surface wear, thin crease to bottom right corner of front cover, a couple of turned page tips.
