A true UK first edition / first printing, with the full number string 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2 on the copyright page. A great copy of this unsettling novel, about a man obsessed with re-creating Nelson's battles (in his basement). By the Booker Prize-winning author of 'Sacred Hunger'. A very nice copy, marred only by a yellowing of the page edges.Not price-clipped. We protect all our books with a removable cover, and send them with care. N° de ref. de la librería 000967

Losing Nelson
312 pp. "Losing Nelson is a 1999 novel by Barry Unsworth. Its protagonist is Charles Cleasby, who is obsessed with Lord Nelson, attempts to re-enact events of "Horatio"'s life to the point of feeling that he is the admiral, and who is writing a hagiographic biography. His typist, the down-to-earth Miss Lily, serves as his foil in her criticism of Nelson's ego and treatment of his wife. At the end, when Cleasby has journeyed to Naples to do research in the hope of exonerating his hero for his execution of Admiral Caracciolo and other Neapolitan Jacobins, he murders a child near the location of Nelson's betrayal, simultaneously imagining that he is killing the child Nelson and that the act forever merges him with Nelson."Keywords: BARRY UNSWORTH LOSING NELSON BOOKER PRIZE CONTEMPORARY FICTION
