The dustwrapper is complete but with dust accumulation to lower edges of both flaps. I have not attempted to clean this. An unread copy. 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.

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.
