Published by William Morrow, New York, 1992, 1st US Edition, D/w, Fine.   Experienced climber and author Jeff Long based this novel on his own Himalayan ventures – prolific climbing author David Roberts notes that “The Ascent is an astonishing novel, a darkly brilliant tale haunted by the ominous yet charged with hope and beauty. By embedding the climb of a new route on Everest within the larger story of the cultural tragedy of Tibet, Jeff Long weds suspense and moral vision in a fashion reminiscent of Joseph Conrad.”  Winner of the Boardman Tasker Prize for 1993.
