Descripción

Fine first printing in fine dustwrapper. The book is unmarked, square and tight. An unread copy. The dustwrapper has been clipped a re-priced at £10.95 by the publisher. Very minimal shelfwear evident to the top and base of the spine panel. Signed by the author to the title page, without further inscription. As an enthusiastic collector myself, I make every effort to provide a high level of service. Enquiries welcomed. N° de ref. de la librería 005957

Sinopsis:

Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw, now mylar-sleeved. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Book is not price-clipped.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 195 pages; Physical description. : 195 p. ; 20 cm. Subject: Courage - Fiction. Women - England - Fiction. Fiction in English - 1945- - Textsfiction in English - 1945- - texts. Summary: A fighter pilot, high above the English Channel in 1941, watches the sun rise; he descends 10,000 feet and then, to his amazement, finds the sun beginning to rise again. With this haunting image Julian Barnes' novel begins. It charts the life of Jean Serjeant, from her beginnings as a naive, carefree country girl before the war through to her wry and trenchant old age in the year 2020. We follow her bruising experience in marriage, her questioning of male truths, her adventures in motherhood and in China; we learn the questions she asks of life and the often unsatisfactory answers it provides.
