Hi

Could you tell me the name of the publisher? & confirm that your page count doesn't include any advertising or extracts from other books? Thanks. :)

Nocturnalux | 30 comments The publisher is Dom Quixote (which, in turn, is part of a larger publishing conglomerate) and it includes a short preface by another author (4 pages); this preface is included in the page count.

This is about the only reference I could find of this edition; the page number is listed as 192 and I just checked, it is correct: there was a blank page at the end that (it was tucked into the book jacket so I failed to see it).

Including the blank pages at the very start/ending, titles pages, the preface (at which point the page count starts to appear as such), the total is 192.

Thanks for that. Information added, plus the ISBN13. We don't count blank pages. I notice there is an incomplete award on this book. Does your book blurb mention this. The year the award was given isn't mentioned. :)

Nocturnalux | 30 comments The copy currently in my possession mentions that the book was awarded the Nelly Sachs Prize (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nelly_S...) in 1997.

The translator for this edition is Salvato Telles de Menezes (let me know if I should post the translator credit elsewhere).

Hi

The Nelly Sachs Prize is awarded to the author rather the book, so I have added that information to the author's biography. I have found the date this book won an award on the author's website & added it there. Thanks for reporting. :)
