First edition first print hardback of THE DESTINY OF NATHALIE X and Other Stories by William Boyd and published by Sinclair Stevenson in 1995. Signed by Boyd on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (black cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine) with no significant wear apart from some tanning around the page edges. The book is in very good price-clipped dust jacket which has minor creasing to the edges. Internally, the pages are otherwise clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

This collection of stories is William Boyd's second, appearing some fourteen years after his first, On the Yankee Station. Once again the stories range widely across the time and space of the twentieth century. The Destiny of Nathalie "X" is a modern fable about Hollywood; Cork tells of a bizarre love affair between an Englishwoman and a Portuguese poet in 1930s Lisbon; Transfigured Night is set in Vienna during the First World War and is concerned with the problematic relationship between a wealthy patron (who bears a curious resemblance to Ludwig Wittgenstein) and his indifferent benefactor. Fantasy and farce, rueful longing and the bitter acknowledgement of life's relentless ironies all feature in these nine stories by one of our most celebrated and imaginative writers.
