192 pages; Fine/Fine. Full number sequence. Un-read tight. Boards are straight, tips are pointed, spine is square and pages are clean. DJ is fine! Beautiful art work to cover. In protective sleeve. An excellent gift! This early work by the Booker Prize winning author Barry Unsworth is now available for the first time in the United States. The story has two alternating narrators; Simon, obsessively pursues a peculiar underground life and the second narrator is Josh, of gypsy background. A naif, he has unpolished artistic talent. He meets Mortimer at a fair and is hired to be his gardner. Adding the strangely disturbing Mortimer to the mix leads to an explosive chemistry between the characters that will rip and rearrange all their lives.
