Comments & Further Information

First UK Edition, first printing. Full 1 to 10 number sequence. Unread. Price stil on dustjacket. In captivating, vivid prose, Valerie Martin explores the trials and rewards of human relationships and creative endeavour. “A painter, who owes his small success to a man he despises, discovers that his passivity has cost him the love that might have set him free. A writer of modest talents encounters the old love who once betrayed him; now she repels him, yet the unfinished novel she leaves in his hands may surpass anything he could ever produce himself. An American poet in Rome finds herself forced to choose between her lover and a world so alien it takes her voice away. A print maker, who has reached a certain age, enters so deeply into the magical world of her imagination that she can never find her way back.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
