1979 ----- Stated: First Edition-----Keywords: NONFICTION PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS----- -Excerpt from dust jacket flaps: "A Space in Time" chronicles a decisive summer in the life of twenty-year-old Mike, a college student who lives with his widowed father and Aunt Rose. ---- Mike feels suffocated by his family and their well-ordered, mundane, working-class existence. Surrounded by urban callousness and atrophy, he has postponed his confrontation with life and allowed himself to be bogged down in a morass of dull routine and withdrawal from the company of his peers. ---- Concealed behind a mask of bland nonchalance and cool detachment is an intense personal crisis as Mike desperately bids for reconciliation with those around him. ---- A Space in Time deals with Mike's emergence from a meaningless, depressing existence into a joyous, richly emotional one. The lesson he learns is a hard one, for in opening himself to real love and, subsequently, to pain and loss, he discards his protective shell and becomes a feeling, and thus vulnerable, human being. He comes face to face with the inevitable conclusion that, as with everyone else, his consciousness is merely a collection of loosely fragmented bits and pieces, and not a whole. ---- How Mike meets Suzie and finally makes that all-important commitment to life and love provides a powerful and realistic picture of a meaningful relationship which was never intended to be permanent. Yet, in loving and losing Suzie to circumstance, all is not really lost. ---- For his outlook changes from one of abject despair to one of renewed faith in, and acceptance of, life-a quiet but determined optimism. ---- Orazio Monaco, the son of Italian immigrants, was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1956. ---- The author received his degree in the creative arts from Dawson College in Quebec. He was continuing his studies in the fine arts until 1975, when his physical condition (Friedrich's ataxia) degenerated to the point where it was too difficult for him to attend classes. Since then he has pursued a course of home study." ---- -- Very Good Condition Hardcover----with---- Good Dust Jacket ---price is not clipped on dust jacket flap -- Has small tears & chips, some minor edge wear also a small amount of water, or damp stains to the dust jacket-- DJ is in a new archival dust jacket protector (Brodart) --- Not Ex-library copy, --- no missing or torn out pages ----- binding is sound-and tight --no other marks are writing to textblock-- No Previous Owner's Name----no remainder marks --- Not Book Club Edition----126 pages Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
