Hi, the commentary to Therigatha was published by Pali Text Society (PTS):
http://www.palitext.com/
The Commentary on the Verses of the Theris,
tr. William Pruitt, 1998
ISBN 363 X £28.40

Check on their website, or even better just contact them (see the "How to Order" page on their website for contact details) because it looks like there are several ways to make a payment, which might not involve a credit card. If not, then usually you can order almost any book through your local bookshop - you will give them cash and then they will order it for you from PTS (or Pariyatti if you are in North America), though it will be a little more expensive that way probably.

Best wishes
pt1

Hi PT1, thanks alot. i will try this way. i need this book for my homeworks, hopefully successful.
im living at Srilanka, i already check to whole the big Buddhist bookshops at Srilanka, they are : Buddhist Culture Centre (Dehiwala and Bauddhaloka mawatha) also BPS at Kandy. i asked them to help me to find that book, but they said very expensive to make order to PTS if their shop unavailable, then they said i have to try byself to contact to PTS, but i think it is so difficult, now i got the way. thanks again.
