Descripción

This is a true UK first edition / first printing, with the correct dates on the copyright page. Flat-signed by the author on the title page, and unmared by a date or dedication. A perfect copy of this mature and subtle novel, spanning three generations of an English family. No faults of any kind. Wonderful. By the Booker-shortlisted (and Orange Prize-winning) author of 'The Clothes on their Backs'. We protect all our books with a removable plastic cover, and send them with care.

Sinopsis:

In 1968 Stephen Newman arrives in England from California. Sent down from Oxford, he hurriedly marries his English girlfriend Andrea to avoid returning to America and the draft board. Over the next forty years they and their friends build lives of middle-class success until the events of late middle-age and the new century force them to realise that their fortunate generation has always lived in a fool's paradise.

Críticas:

** 'A fascinating and poignant Chinese box of a novel, in which places and times hold each other's secrets, nothing stays still, and even the most important moments appear transitory. Linda Grant uncovers the tragedy inherent in chronology itself, and thus demonstrates, as only a novelist can, the treacherous falsity of dreams and ideology. This is a work of great tenderness and regret ( Howard Jacobson, author of the Man Booker winner THE FINKLER QUESTION)
