WTH happened to the Woodlands Library copy of "Maps"?

So I reserved a copy of Nuruddin Farah's Maps last Monday or Tuesday. Usually these reservations get processed in three days' time.

Now, not only is my reservation still "pending", but the borrowable copy of Maps no longer even appears in the online catalogue. It's bizarre - if the copy was lost, usually they'd say it was lost.

So do I read the 259-page autographed reference section copy, shelved in the closed stacks? Or do I just read something else by this Somalian author? Am kind of holding on to the idea of reading this, since it's considered one of 100 Best African Books of the 20th Century.
