Binding: Hardcover

Condition: As New

Dust Jacket Condition: As New

Edition: 1st Edition Very fine hardcover in dust jacket now protected in removable cover. Ben Kiely has described PROXOPERA [the title derives from the tactic of having bombs delivered by proxy] as being “a condemnation of the interference by violent men in the lives of ordinary people”. It is a vivid, hurtful, often witty, wholly absorbing story. In the words of the Irish Times nobody writes better about the North than Ben Kiely. Proxopera may well turn out to be the best book yet on the tragedy of the North. Collector’s Item
