Shantaram signed and lined by Gregory David Roberts 1st / 1st 2004
First UK edition and first print published by Little Brown in 2004. It is in fine / unread condition. The wrapper is very complete with no tears or chips. The book is very presentable with clean and bright boards. The pages have no foxing or previous owners ink. Overall a fine copy and signed by the author to the title page without dedication. He has also written a line from the book "Love is the truth so be true to your love". He has also dated it in the year of publication. Overall fine and rare lined and signed.
Shantaram is a novel in which a convicted Australian bank robber and heroin addict escapes from Pentridge Prison and flees to India. The novel is commended by many for its vivid portrayal of tumultuous life in Bombay. The novel is reportedly influenced by real events in the life of the author, though some claims made by Roberts are contested by others involved in the story. A rare signed and lined copy.
