The Shell Collector
The Shell Collector.
New York: Scribners, 2002.
An exquisite collection of eight short stories, the first book from Anthony Doerr.
The first story in particular, about a blind man, whose disability gives him an unnatural sense of touch with which to classify shells, is a masterpiece.
Beautiful jacket by John Fulbrook.
Very good hardcover, with owner name, in perfect dust-jacket.
