Printing Details

First US edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 23.5 × 16cm, 352pp.

Signed by Claire Messud directly to the title page.

The Last Life is the story of the teenage Sagesse LaBasse and her family, French Algerian emigrants. It is set in colonial Algeria, the south of France, and New England. The LaBasse family had always believed in the permanence of their world, in which stories created from the past had the weight of truth, in which cynicism was the defense against disaster.


The book is very good condition, with a little rubbing to the boards' bottom edge. The dustwrapper is in good order as well.
