Descripción:

First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 22.5 × 14cm. 371pp. Signed by Adam Thorpe directly to the title page. It is the freakishly hot, drought summer of 1921; dust storms in London, parched and cracking earth, autumn tints in July. Holed up in a cottage in the Chilterns, a young writer strives to write the first great novel of the War, impelled by his own suffering. Outward events and inner crises deflect him from his purpose, and love intervenes in the form of two very different women. A visit to the hallucinatory wreckage of post-war Flanders brings strange repercussions in its wake. Everyone is in some way damaged by the terrible years of the war; in what sense can art be made out of such horror? Condition: Very good condition. N° de ref. de la librería 005252

Sinopsis: During the freakishly hot, drought summer of 1921, a young writer is holed up in a cottage in the Chilterns, striving to write the first great novel of the War, impelled by his own suffering. In what sense can art be made out of such horror?

Críticas: "Thorpe offers an immaculate re-recording of long-dead voices" ( Observer)

"As always, Adam Thorpe displays a gift for revealing the suggestively sinister in a pastoral setting." ( Independant)

"his complex, beautifully written, witty and insightful novel never loses sight of its theme" ( Daily Mail)

"Thorpe's First World War is not like any other" ( Herald-Glasgow)
