Kinder, Gary, Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea, New York: The Atlantic Monthly Press, 1998, pp507. Large paperback. As good as new.
This is a large paperback that I'd bought from Romie sometime at the end of 2004 or the beginning of 2005. A year or two before that, I'd noticed a paperback of the same title on the bookshelf but I didn't buy it 'coz its front cover was a little tattered.
I guess a little patience in waiting helps in searching for another used book of better condition.
