Booksybooks. an online bookshop.

What I hope from this little venture is to make it easier for people who loves books and bargains to surf through & shop for cheap books online.
My intent is to spread these books around and reinvest their values into new readers.

The books are second-hand of course and comes with faults here and there. But I feel that gives them character. Personally, I love wondering where these books come from and who has read them before. I hope you will come to feel the same way too...

Interior by Justin Cartwright

Category: Fiction
Type: Paperback
Condition: Yellowed pages
Price: RM10

The narrator of this immaculately written book is a journalist and film-maker investigating the disappearance of his father in Africa in 1959 while on a trip for National Geographic in the company of the lovestruck Mrs De Luth. Certain of the locals believe he is still alive somewhere in the mountainous interior, having been adopted by the Ofreo tribe, a strange and venerable caste of master-craftsmen. Dodging the vested interests of the Ngwenya clan, his wayward wife Magdan and the colonial dinosaur Jumbo Munroe, the narrator embarks on a quasi-biblical quest that owes more to Waugh and Ballard than Rider Haggard, a tale that hits the ground running and continues at a vigorous pace.
