Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition trade paperback (large size: 152mm x 230mm) with a full 1 to 9 number sequence indicating a first printing.  There is some light tanning to the pages. The covers are showing some some signs of shelf wear to the extremities: tiny crease across top right-hand corner of front cover, and bottom left-hand corner of rear cover.  Light crease on front cover running from the bottom edge for about  10cm.

SYNOPSIS:  “It is forty years into the future and, following decades of research and trillions of euros spent on genetics, Europe is finally in a position to rejuvenate a human being. The first subject for treatment is Jeff Baker, the father of the datasphere (which replaced the Internet) and philanthropist extraordinaire.  After eighteen months in a German medical facility, the seventy-eight-year-old patient returns home looking like a healthy twenty-year-old.

Misspent Youth follows the effects his reappearance has on his family and friends – his young ex-model wife Sue, his teenage son Tim, and his long term pals, themselves – all pensioners – who are starting to resent what Jeff has become.”
