A true UK first edition / first printing, with 'First published in 1989 by Andre Deutsch' on the copyright page (and no later edition stated). A small scuff to the top of the jacket. The price is neatly-clipped. Otherwise, a very nice copy of this intelligent novel by the author of the Booker Prize-winning 'Moon Tiger'. All our books are protected by a remobvable plastic cover, and stored out of sunlight. N° de ref. de la librería 000367
Sinopsis: Booker Prize-winning author Penelope Lively is that rare writer who goes from strength to strength in book after perfectly assured book. In Passing On, she applies her distinctive insight and consummate artistry to the subtle story of a domineering and manipulative mother's legacy to her children. With their mother's death, Helen and Edward, both middle-aged and both unmarried, are left to face the ramifications of their mother's hold on their lives for all of these years. Helen and Edward slowly learn to accept what has been lost in their own lives and embrace what can yet be retrieved.
Sinopsis: Mother's funeral is not mourned. Around her grave are her children. Helen and Edward Glover, 52 and 49 respectively, mild and shabby, both of them unmarried, have never left home for very long. Mother - bossy, selfish and limited - dominated their lives. What will they do now that she is gone?
