Light shelfwear to edges and boards. DJ protected with mylar and not clipped. Pages tight and clean. Library discard with usual marks and attachments. Pocket removed. ISBN 0385027710. Stated First US edition. 204 pages. Once again, as in "The Pumpkin Eater," the narrator of Penelope Mortimer's extraordinary and powerful new novel is anonymous. She is also, it seems at first, without a past, or without any clear memory of her past. This is her predicament when she finds herself taken into a strange community living in the mansion of a huge estate. Are these people her forgotten life? Is she part of theirs? Or are they meeting for the first time, as strangers? Are the love, delight, betrayal, sexual happiness, and pain she experiences here happening for the first time, or are they past experiences which she must repeat in order, at last, to remember and understand?Visit my eCRATER Store for other great books and save on shipping!
